Ok I’m only going to read female authors for a year…starting with Atwood, Plath, and Angelou. Anybody have any other suggestions?

I love science, and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awed by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and reinvigorate it.

Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.

I just emailed MTA requesting info on these mosaics all over the 42nd Street/Times Square subway station that very closely resemble the Confederate flag. I notice them every time I walk through the station and finally looked them up. 
Based on what little information I’ve found online, Squire Vickers, who designed many of the stations and mosaics, may have designed them to pay tribute to the former owner of the New York Times, Adolph Ochs. (Ochs had moved the NYT building to Longacre Square in 1904, which was then renamed Times Square.) Ochs was raised in Knoxville, Tennessee and apparently donated a lot of money to preserve Confederate history—including $1,000 to the Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial in Georgia so his mom’s name could be engraved on the founder’s roll.
MTA, maybe it’s time for a renovation?
(I am supposedly going to receive an email response within 15 business days.)
