This is an old story but I only recently found it so I’m re-posting it. The news that a prison inmate, Larry Davis, 41, was stabbed to death with a homemade shank on Wednesday evening at a state prison in Ulster County will recall for many New Yorkers a South Bronx criminal case that...

Jack Johnson Pardoned

ESPN News Services Jack Johnson, the first black man to become world heavyweight champion, was posthumously pardoned Thursday by President Donald Trump for a 1913 conviction for violating the Mann Act. Trump had said in April that he was considering the pardon after receiving a call from actor Sylvester Stallone. Previous pleas to presidents by celebrities and lawmakers had failed. “I am taking this very righteous step, I believe, to correct a wrong that occurred in our history and to honor a truly legendary boxing champion,” Trump said during an Oval Office ceremony, where he was joined by Stallone and boxers Lennox Lewis and...

George A. Romero (1940-2017)

George A. Romero: A Maestro of Zombie Terror Who Created the Ultimate Horror-Movie Metaphor by Owen Gleiberman | Variety The first time I ever saw “Night of the Living Dead,” the low-budget masterpiece of flesh-eating midnight terror directed by George A. Romero, who died on Sunday, it was in 1974.

Edward Bernays on PR

When I came back to the United States, I decided that if you could use propaganda for war, you could certainly use it for peace. And “propaganda” got to be a bad word because of the Germans using it, so what I did was try and find some other words so we found the words...

The Trump campaign was a frightening thing. He rallied the worst elements of America in terms of racism, prejudice, supremacy, and arrogance. But at the same time, it was a tremendous gift: We want to somehow pretend that this America is not there, but now we can see. Excerpt from Chicago...
