Fits of Fury

I’m starting to see that throwing Luke Perry into a picture will probably earn it some points with me, no matter how small the part.

Of the Reading of Many Books There is No End

I’ve never wanted to be a teacher, but if I were one I’d hope it is either a high school honors course or college students. I’d choose to teach them Wordsworth’s “Preface to the Second Edition of Lyrical Ballads” since I’ve always preferred romantic poets for their nature loving, dreamy, dramatic portrayal of our world.

Margaret Thatcher earned her reputation as a cruel negotiator when she "wrapped" EU politicians at a summit in 1984. And Theresa May seemed determined to follow in the footsteps of the Tory heroine as she lunged at Jean-Claude Juncker today in the eyes of today's television cameras.
