"Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone deserves a second chance. I know he didn't mean it in that type of way. I know people get tired of seeing me on TV. But sometimes you got to think about what you're doing before you do it." - Smart Girl Mo'ne Davis

"It takes a great deal of courage to turn your back on popularity and to go out on your own." - from Leonard Nimoy's Advice To A Biracial Girl In 1968
When a young girl with a black mother and white father wrote to a teen magazine in 1968 about not fitting in, the Star Trek actor responded at length about how Spock navigated two cultures.

Sunday evening the dam at Bastrop State Park failed. The lake has mostly emptied. No injuries have been reported. The park is closed but nearby Buescher State Park remains open.
