'Anne often confided in Kitty, calling out what she saw as a lack of genuineness and hypocrisy on the part of her roommates. While some of her venting certainly seemed to sprout from the teenage misunderstandings on her own part, some arguments felt like much more that, a clue-in to Anne’s coming arrival as a woman of strength, with a strong radar and dislike for injustice.'

Sun Ra - Atlantis

The title song is a 21-minute epic recorded in Nigerian drummer Olatunji’s cultural center on 125th Street (where John Coltrane also recorded some of his most demanding works). Beginning with ominous sonar beeps from the depths, Sun Ra plays Gibson organ and Clavioline, rolling his hands on the keys, making space chords with his forearms, windmilling the keyboard by spinning around and around. Soon Atlantis goes under, sonically. It’s Sun Ra’s Toccata and Fugue.

Can I just point out that $4.3 billion of military equipment [given to police since 1997] have failed to prevent how many mass shootings in the last ten years? »Margaret Hedderman, from ‘Urchins Take Sides: Ferguson

Solidarity rallies have been held in cities like New York, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., but where are the buses? Where are the people travelling to Ferguson and standing, actually physically standing, with the community? Protestors there are being teargassed, shot with rubber bullets, and bullied into submission with ambiguous curfew laws. They cannot, and should not, have to face that alone. »Sarah Jost, from ‘Urchins Take Sides: Ferguson
