Opening on Broadway Thursday with Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett, this play about Martin Luther King, Jr. by the remarkable young Katori Hall is not what I expected – I don’t want to give it away by telling you more – and not to be missed.
WE’RE LOSING OUR PLANET
The forests are dying. “Experts are scrambling to understand the situation,” reports the New York Times, “and to predict how serious it may become. Scientists say the future habitability of the Earth might well depend on the answer. For, while a majority of the world’s people now live in cities, they depend more than ever on forests, in a way that few of them understand.”
I know: the last thing most of us need to start the day is more concerning news. But wouldn’t it be nice to be remembered as the generation that came to grips with its problems in time to preserve the habitability of the planet and save humanity?
Quote of the Day
Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks. --Karl Marx Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil. Capital in some form or other will always be needed. -- Gandhi~Gandhi
