"A Train From 1836 Could Be Buried In Brooklyn Because Of Petty Politics" http://jalopnik.com/a-train-from-1836-could-be-buried-in-brooklyn-because-o-1693833760 #mustread #feedly 
A beautifully preserved 1830s steam train is thought to be lurking under a busy thoroughfare in one of the posher parts of Brooklyn. But in 1861, it was sealed up, seemingly for eternity. Everything was set to excavate it just a few years back, until petty personal politics seem to have destroyed any chance of that.

THIS is quite the read. Nicely articulates the challenges and benefits of helping to keep the old languages alive.

I wish there was more information about the history of the house. 
The "Cloud House" in Wales has been abandoned for decades, but now we can take a peek inside through the photographs of Dan Circa.

Quite the story!
A new movie tells the true story of Maria Altmann, who fought her way to the U.S. Supreme Court to force the Austrian government to return a painting of her aunt.

THIS is an amazing project. 
The end may be near for one of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's most celebrated humanities projects, the half-century-old Dictionary of American Regional English. In a few months, the budget pool will drain to a puddle. Layoff notices have been sent, eulogies composed. "It's a damned shame.

OK - has anyone ever heard about this? Quite the narrative here...
After the American Civil War, some 7,000 Confederates set sail for Brazil. Their Dixie-loving descendants represent one of the most curious cultures in the modern world.

Reader, writer, and grammar and language aficionado. "Proper words in proper places, make the true definition of style." -Jonathan Swift
Introduction
Especially interested in reader, writer, and digital media topics. I am still trying to determine my digital self.

“I quote others only to better express myself.”― Michel de Montaigne
 
“Thalberg: Life and Legend,” authored by Bob Thomas: “At times Irving Thalberg seemed to hate his very dependence on writers and his frustration that he could not perform their functions. During one heated script session, he said almost contemptuously, ‘What’s all this business about being a writer? It’s just putting one word after another.’ Lenore Coffee (a screenwriter) corrected him: ‘Pardon me, Mr. Thalberg; it’s putting one right word after another.’”
