QUEEN OF HEARTS

♦♦♦ The Smiths were proud of their family tradition. Their ancestors had come to America on the Mayflower. They had included Senators and Wall Street wizards. They decided to compile a family history, a legacy for their children and grandchildren. They hired a fine author. Only one problem arose – how to handle that great-uncle […]

 Once she had hung up the phone with her sister, Beth sent out a mass text to the rest of the family. It wasn’t long before text were going back and forth as siblings, cousins, parents, children and spouses chatted back and forth excitedly. Stella smiled as her phone pinged over and over with texts.  […]

Talking of Christmas, as we seem to be doing permanently on this blog, here’s a Christmas staple. But before that, some Pages from Ceefax. One story I noticed, about Neil Kinnock wanting to throw out members of Liverpool Militant, the group that Derek Hatton was part of. He’s in the news at the moment because […]

  For this post, I want to consider how Jayne Lewis’s hypothesis about language and empire connects in today’s standards. Lewis’s hypothesis under analysis is: Language is a partner of empire, supporting its goals… but that same language can be used against empire, as a tool to critique, dislodge and appropriate power. She connects the […]

Killing a 23-year-old man outside his family’s St. Paul home was an act of cruelty, a relative of the man wrote on Friday. Police continue to investigate the homicide of Raytrell Benjamin, who was shot while sitting in the driver’s seat of a van in the Summit-University neighborhood on Thursday night. No arrests or motive have been announced by police. Raytrell Benjamin Benjamin was a brother, son and uncle, according to a Facebook post by a woman who said she was his sister. She described Benjamin as “my rock” and wrote he “never hurt a soul. … I want the person who did this to know God is on his way with your punishment.” Officers responded about 8:45 p.m. Thursday to a report of shots fired on Carroll Avenue between Grotto and Avon streets. Police found a man had been shot in the head. Relatives of Benjamin cried and comforted each other as they stood in the street on Friday morning near blood-soaked snow. The night before, officers or paramedics took the injured man out of the van to try to render aid, but he was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. As people tried to shovel the snow away on Friday, a man drove by and got out with a shovel to help. Sam Young, who offered his condolences to the family, said “anybody would have done the same if they saw someone trying to clean up after a loved one’s loss like that.” Soon after, when Young arrived at his nearby destination, he found out it was his friend’s brother who had been killed. Young only met Benjamin a couple of times, but he said he knew him as a “good kid who was always respectful. It’s a really sad situation.” Benjamin attended St. Paul’s Central High School and graduated from Gordon Parks High School in 2014. Police are asking anyone with information to call them at (651) 266-5650. A 19-year-old man was fatally shot in September in the same area, at at Avon Street and Carroll Avenue, after an attempted robbery during a marijuana deal ended with a shootout, according to charges filed in the case. “The neighborhood has been through a lot,” said Steve Linders, a St. Paul police spokesman. “Our Western District officers and other units have been working closely with people living in that area and we’re all focused on the same thing and that’s to keep the Summit-University neighborhood safe for everyone.” [related_articles location=”right” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”]Reports of shots fired are down about 3 percent this year compared with last year. Thursday’s homicide was the fifth of the year in St. Paul, but the city has seen fewer shootings overall — 14 people have been shot this year versus 22 at the same time in 2018, Linders said Friday morning.
