“Atticus–” said Jem bleakly.

“Atticus–” said Jem bleakly.

He turned in the doorway. “What, son?”

“How could they do it, how could they?”

“I don’t know, but they did it. They’ve done it before and they did it tonight and they’ll do it again and when they do it — seems that only children weep.”

— "To Kill A Mockingbird," Harper Lee

6. Not "all" all.

Oh, California Peggy, what's to become of us? So many gains I thought we'd made as a society seem to have gone up in smoke. I feel like the bottom just fell out.

3. In the beginning...

was Ferguson.

Then winter came and then spring.

Like buds on a tree, the resentment sprang forth and spread.

It was no longer isolated in Ferguson.

The hatred rose up like fire in kindling.

Ferguson was a distant memory.

7. Will Pitt...

... I swear, this is what went through my mind since approx 9:30pm EDT last night. The whole affair reminds me of "To Kill A Mockingbird."
