"Grapes Of Wrath" is 75; its depictions of poverty are timeless. http://mprne.ws/vLc5Y
Steinbeck's novel follows the Joad family as they flee Dust Bowl Oklahoma for a new life in California. When the book was first published -- 75 years ago Monday -- it was a best-seller. But Susan Shillinglaw, an English professor at San Jose State University and author of the book On Reading The Grapes of Wrath, says it also came under fierce attack.

Could playfulness be embedded in the universe? http://mprne.ws/vL7Hk
Graeber's proposal is, roughly, that play provides the principle. Play is the exercise of our best powers -- to run and jump and pay attention and outsmart -- but in the interest of nothing at all. The power of play, Graeber suggests, consists precisely in the fact that it frees us, for example, from enslavement to the demands of means-end rationality and the market place.

Your Minnesota Weekend: The Muddy Season. http://mprne.ws/vHvkL
It's officially spring: Warmer, wetter and a whole lot melty-er -- which means it's a great time to take advantage of the music, theater and film offerings in the area this week. And maybe start planning for your summer road trips, while you're at it.

I hope justice prevails, defending yourself doesn't justify murder. He out right murdered those children, no matter if one of them were 18 plus. Being an adult by age doesn't mean you are maturely an adult.
