The Feds vs. Ferguson

nytimes.com — On Wednesday, the Department of Justice released the utterly devastating results of its investigation of the Ferguson Police Department. The report contained charges that the Police Department and the municipal courts treated citizens less like constituents and more like a revenue stream, violating citizens' constitutional rights in the process.

CPAC: Hackneyed and Hollow

nytimes.com — I never know how to set my expectations for the Conservative Political Action Conference, also known as CPAC.

The Curious Case of Trayvon Martin

nytimes.com — "He said that Tray was gone." That's how Sybrina Fulton, her voice full of ache, told me she found out that her 17-year-old son, Trayvon Martin, had died. In a wrenching telephone call, the boy's father, who had taken him to visit a friend, told her that Trayvon had been gunned down in a gated townhouse community in Sanford, Fla., outside Orlando.

Blow: Who loves America?

hamptonroads.com — We have arrived at the point where the utter tedium and desperation of personal attacks against President Barack Obama about his life story and his loyalty are no longer news.

Fire Shut Up in My Bones

powells.com — Fire Shut Up in My Bones by Charles M. Blow: A gorgeous, moving memoir of how one of America's most innovative and respected journalists found his voice by coming to terms with a painful past. New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow mines the compelling poetry of the out-of-time African-American Louisiana town where he grew...

FIRE SHUT UP IN MY BONES

audiofilemagazine.com — This audiobook is a welcome exception to light, and overly hopeful, memoirs. The author, a NEW YORK TIMES columnist, is unsparing in his truthfulness and emotion. Yes, there are hope and life and happiness, but Blow also accentuates the grittiness, racism, and challenges he faced growing up in the South in the 1970s.

Humans used to get sugar once a year, from fruit, when it fell from the trees are sprouted on the bushes. We're not built for constant sugar
