Every month, I will continue to do the best job that I can to make your reading experience enjoyable. The new season begins for everyone’s favorite offbeat work buddy comedy from TBS is back on April 4th.
Based in part by the book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin this film was adapted for the screen by the creative screenplay from Tony Kusherner. Steven Spielberg helmed his long-in-the-making biopic of Abraham Lincoln for DreamWorks and Touchstone Pictures. After the events of the last few months of the Rise of the Third Army that took place over the pages of Green Lantern, Green Lantern: New Guardians, Red Lanterns, and Green Lantern Corps, the next Green Lantern-centric story-arc started with the Wrath of the First Green Lantern. Tony Bedard and Aaron Kuder were the creative team behind the latest adventure of Kyle Rayner as this Green Lantern had mastered the emotional spectrum. Richard Castle’s Storm Season reunites the lauded writing duo of Brian Michael Bendis and Kelly Sue DeConnick for their second Castle story. Meanwhile this month marked plenty of political drama on top of the sequester, 2013 C-PAC conference took place with heavy hitters, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman and Paul Ryan each taking the podium. March was especially big for the complete chaos that was the Pop Culture world of comic books.
Left-of-center media have descended into a feeding frenzy to attack the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) in the wake of its 40th year of hosting a successful gathering for conservative activists.
Isabella Penola, a 15-year-old from the Midwest, is a co-editor at Brumbarger’s website for conservative high schoolers. Check back next month for plenty more details on the above information and more about overall first impressions as the fall season less than a week old. As for the pilots ordered from the last few weeks they include: ABC announced it signed Rebel Wilson to star in the ensemble comedy, Super Fun Night. On the 16th, I promised an announcement next time of something new coming to this website, something I hope of considerable interest to followers of the BSI’s history. The final two essays about Conan Doyle biography from the second edition of my book The Quest for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: Thirteen Biographers in Search of a Life. The next two essays about Conan Doyle biography from the second edition of my book The Quest for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: Thirteen Biographers in Search of a Life. The first two of half a dozen essays about Conan Doyle biography by me and other Baker Street Irregulars which constituted new material of a second edition, in 1997, of my 1987 book The Quest for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: Thirteen Biographers in Search of a Life.
New York in the summer of 1939: several minutes of lovely color movie of the city, filmed in 16mm Kodachrome by a French tourist—my thanks to Susan Dahlinger BSI for sending it to me.
The next chapter of my Great Alkali Plainsmen history, this time about my own ten years running it from long distance, in Washington D.C.
Started, at Books, my 1988 history of The Great Alkali Plainsmen of Greater Kansas City, without which I would probably have never gotten into all this BSI history stuff. At Essays, a 1996 Five Orange Pips paper about Richard Hughes, the legendary Australian foreign correspondent in East Asia, and The Baritsu Chapter he co-founded in 1948, with some additional material. I was horrified, by the way, to see used copies of my historical novel Baker Street Irregular for sale for up to $188!  It’s still in print for less than a quarter of that!
I’ve been able to restore the photographs for my and David Galerstein’s Spring 2004 Baker Street Journal article about Edgar W. If I were to describe vividly my reaction to reading Baker Street Irregular side by side with your volume of explanation, you would accuse me of gushing. A long-time member of The Great Alkali Plainsmen of Greater Kansas City is University of Kansas film studies professor John Tibbetts, who has followed Sherlock Holmes in movies for many years. At Links are a new selection of current items along with some additions to the continuing list, notably the one for the late Donald Libey’s John H. Last time I reported below about this 1933 photograph of Chicago literary men at Schlogl’s, which also appeared in the revived Saturday Review of Literature in January. I have talked before (and will again) about Schlogl’s, the teutonic Chicago restaurant on Wells Street that was the local Mermaid Tavern for its literary and journalistic circles, and for Vincent Starrett and The Hounds of the Baskerville (sic) what Christ Cella’s was to Morley’s Three Hours for Lunch Club and the early BSI. When this book began to be written the hands of the big wall clock at Schlogl’s had already advanced to half past two, and as I looked up at the great disc of the pendulum, somnolently swinging back and forth like an animated moon, I saw reflected within its highly polished surface a merry and leisurely company that gave no signs of going home. I take it as proven that Mike Fiaschetti, former chief of the Italian Squad in the New York Police Department, is a rattling good narrator, and Mr.
Natural shrewdness, obstinacy, and guts are presumably the foundation qualities for detecting, as most likely for anything else; but the central necessity, according to Mike Fiaschetti, is a wide acquaintance among stool pigeons—i. Garnet sprinkles his between-song patter with stories and cutting, wry humor that audiences carry home and share with others. Garnet’s story is so rich and he’s such a great musician (his blues fingerpicking on “Corrine, Corrina” might be the best I’ve ever heard) that this article should span two issues. Garnet told me, “I got Stan’s secondhand guitar when he got a decent one.” When Garnet was about 12, Stan gave him a Mississippi John Hurt LP for Christmas.
Owney Madden was no scientific genius like Professor Moriarty, but he handled things the same way. Club DeLuxe opened in 1920 at 142nd and Lenox Avenue, but Owney Madden bought it three years later and turned it into the Cotton Club, offering not only booze but the best jazz to be had, launching meteoric careers for Fletcher Henderson, Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, and others. Nevertheless Walker and Beebe become important resources about New York social life for Woody, their perspectives stretching from the 1920s into the ’40s. Prohibition ends December 5th, 1933, just about when Harvard Club librarian Earle Walbridge — later “The Sussex Vampire,” BSI, and at his death in 1962 the only man who’d attended every BSI dinner back to its “first formal meeting” in June ’34 — takes Woody to Christ Cella’s speakeasy on East 45th Street, where he meets Christopher Morley and some of his friends just as the nascent Baker Street Irregulars are about to burst out into the open. In Chapter 3, over the winter, Woody is incurably bitten by the Sherlock Holmes bug, but his work for Owney Madden is not done. It will take all of $5.00 to pay for a dinner for two at Christ Cella’s little hideaway restaurant in the basement of a brownstone front at 144 East Forty-fifth Street, just a block from Grand Central Palace. It still exists — known now as the Oak Room: “by far the hotel’s most significantly historic space, virtually unchanged since the day the Plaza opened for business, Oct.
For the next 70 years, it was patronized by some of the most celebrated folk of the 20th century. Alsop was younger than me, short and pudgy with a pale face and dark-rimmed glasses beneath thin brown hair. When the National Organization for Women decided to challenge the men-only policies at restaurants and clubs, it chose the Oak Room, which refused to serve women at lunch on weekdays, as a test case, knowing the kind of upscale publicity it would lend to the cause. The Men’s Bar Oak Room is sadly the only venue this chapter that still exists (with a close escape a few years ago when the Plaza’s barbarian redeveloper intended to gut it).
Owner John Perona and maitre d’ Frank Carino made El Morocco, once a speakeasy, the place to go and be seen for all manner of celebrities, including Broadway and Hollywood stars. I must have snickered, because he went on reprovingly: “Believe it or not, fortunes and careers are made by sitting at the right table. Woody attends the ’36 annual dinner at Christ Cella’s — neither he nor anyone else there realizing that it will be the last for four years. In the early 1930s the New School’s snazzy new Greenwich Village building, with an informal left-wing faculty and ties to outfits like the John Reed Clubs, was just the place for a Wall Street lawyer to validate his anti-Wall Street feelings, as long as he could duck. After taking Diana to see After the Thin Man on New Year’s Eve, he finds himself finally, truly, completely alone with Diana — and this time all escape cut off.
Pratt stood only 5'3", had thin receding red hair, and wore round-rimmed eyeglasses with tinted lenses.
In 1937 even Irregulars have foreign dangers on their minds, and not just those convening at the Men’s Bar Sundays for martinis and chicken soup.
The British Empire may no longer be able to regard itself, as it reasonably could until 1914, as the leading power of the world; since we let opportunity slip through our fingers in the early twenties, it may be doubted if the world has had any leading power, which may be one of the things that is the matter with it. Everyone did after Benny Goodman took the Paramount Theater by storm, people clamoring for tickets nearly rioting in Sixth Avenue.
Bunny Berigan blew haunting versions of “Ebb Tide” and “Caravan” and a “Study in Brown” whose piano part was the hottest thing I could do. Preface Adaline Pates Potter, known to all as Pates (pate eze) came to Mount Holyoke College from western Pennsylvania with the firm, if romantic, intention of majoring in French and joining the US Consular Service on graduation. If all that lack of variety -- social, religious, and class -- made us parochial in outlook, it was also the basis for what I find the most distinguishing and influential characteristic of the college I knew: we were classless. If Sycamores has ghosts today, I think they are not of the students I knew there, but Margaret, Nellie, and Dunk, assuming still their roles as guardians of the house. Having chosen Sycamores for its eighteenth-century charm, we tried to furnish our rooms in the spirit of the house, at least in so far as our not very knowledgeable taste, our pocketbooks, and our comfort allowed. We had the southwest room at the top of the stairs on the second floor, the one with its own dogleg staircase leading to a locked door on the third floor. In the fall of 1971 or ‘72, the Dean of Students office, faced with a shortage of rooms for an unexpectedly large freshman classand having on its hands an empty Sycamores -- if a really old house so full of memories can ever be called “empty” -- decided to move foreign students from Dickinson, where most of those on the graduate level had been housed for at least twenty years, to Sycamores; that is, from the extreme south end of campus to the even more extreme north. As foreign student adviserI was worried about the change, but since I had been presented with a fait accompli, I had no opportunity to raise the questions that troubled me. This juxtaposition of bathroom and Miss Dunklee was at the heart of one of our more dramatic experiences that winter. Still there were, there had to be, lapses; further disappointments for Miss Dunklee, though none so serious as the bath episode. Whatever the reason for our unease, an evening came when we feared that the sheer numbers of our small infractions had accomplished what one serious carelessness had failed to do: discouraged Dunk irrevocably.
I wish I could recall when we first had Sycamores’ Delight, and I wish I could say that it was something Escoffier would have risked his life for. Since ordinary dates were usually confined to weekends, a week day was chosen for this occasion, in order to highlight the glory. Meanwhile, the two young lady dates, having got themselves dressed for an evening out, were lurking on the second floor at the top of the stairs.
Some of our elders, and some of the more conventional of us, must have thought there were other, more dangerous flames that year, for 1929 was an election year and, though the Republican Herbert Hoover became president that fall, despite my own staunch adherence to the Democratic party, radical criticism, even some talk of listening to the demands of “those unions”, was in the air.
For the most part, though, our interests and activities were confined to college and, more specifically, the dorm. Such long walks were common for us in spite of the skirts we still wore everywhere, but they tended to be informal. A function of Jeanette Marks’s Play Shop was to lend its expertise to the foreign language departments when they put on their annual plays.
More connected to Sycamores was one more of these passing events, small in itself but important to the participants; in this case, to me. End of an extraordinarily satisfying year for seventeen sophomores and for one -- yes, I really do believe it -- often distraught head-resident. The only explanation I can advance for such an uncharacteristic omission is that this was a “middle” college year, merely the end of a dormitory, not the end of college. I can’t say whether I had an exam that morning, but I do recall the late May flowers and fragrance and our great pleasure when Dunk told us as we assembled for lunch that we were to have a picnic in the garden. Miss Dunklee, mindful of the passing time and Miss Green’s inexorable schedule, reluctantly took care of the first problem, giving away the second part of her secret: the food was to be hunted for.
At about five o’clock that afternoon Evelyn turned up, exhausted but jubilant that the questions on the exam she had just taken had called forth her best. Preface  Adaline Pates Potter, known to all as Pates (pate eze) came to Mount Holyoke College from western Pennsylvania with the firm, if romantic, intention of majoring in French and joining the US Consular Service on graduation. Comic Book News presented this past month with more steps into newer formats, as Twitter has never been busier with the various Tweets from this past month across the board. A new deal between the network and Sony has been reached to bring the show back for a fifth season 13-episodes are said to be in development.

Included in this next group of titles will be a four-issue weekly miniseries; What If, AvX. See what these four guys are up to when this show returns to the post-March Madness-less NCAA TBS primetime schedule. Daniel Day-Lewis portrayed the former head of state in the Tony Kushner-penned adaptation of Doris Kearns Goodwin's book Team of Rivals, which chronicles the President's time in office between 1861 and 1865 as he dealt with personal demons and politics during the Civil War. Russell, this film had an astonishing ensemble cast which included: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jacki Weaver, Julia Stiles, Chris Tucker and Robert De Niro.
A small-time magician arrives in an enchanted land and is forced to decide if he will be a good man or a great one. Now this title shifts its theme (not name) in the next five issues starting with this issue and it is a Batman team-up book.
The threat that first led to the formation of the Guardians of the Universe returns, and he’s set his sights on the biggest and brightest of the Corps. In this issue, Atrocious and his Red Lanterns seek final vengeance against the Guardian of OA, but things do not go as planned. In this adaptation of Richard Castle’s second Derrick Strom novel, the private investigation is hired to help a wealthy woman get back the money she lost to a con artist, but what should have been routine mission quickly spirals out of control when the con artist reaches out to Storm seeking his help finding a missing woman. Emanuela Lupacchino supplied artwork for this new tale of the hit ABC drama fictionalized character Derrick Storm. The Blue Devils swept the season series against the Tar Heels after winning this game at UNC.
Another story made its own headlines on the other side of the political Aisle was that in the middle of the month the infamous video from a closed door Boca Raton fundraiser during the 2012 Presidential Campaign for Mitt Romney, “47%” comments came forth and revealed himself to the country as the person who recorded those comments.
For details on this, check below for some highlights from the first day of the event that was not complete as of press time. Coming soon, Entertainment & Press is developing a Twitter themed section that just kicked off in the pages of this very issue. This will tie into the in-continuity series of the hit ABC fairytale adventure show, Once Upon A Time. The much-awaited choice is something of a surprise, as the new pope was not foreshadowed prominently on the short lists of various experts, though the 76-year old was said to be the runner-up to retiring Pope Benedict in the 2005 conclave.


The blunt nature of the cuts has been criticized, with some favoring more tailored cuts and others arguing for postponement while the economy improves. Watson had to contend with the snow we have this weekend up at our elevation of 7250 feet in the Rockies. Smith – I’m loath at this point to call it a biography, hence the title that I’ve adopted -- has been a work in progress a long time: too long, as other books and the irregularities of life had to be given priority at different times.
It was a thoroughly engrossing experience, and now I want other authors to supply me with a side volume for my favorite books, though many of them are dead.
I have read the novel twice already, but several times in this reading I noticed I was in the second or even third chapter before I returned to the notes -- your plot still pulled me insistently along.
Don Yates was active in this superlative scion society himself for many years, and out of his personal archives has provided a 1955 Detroit Free Press photostory about the AMS. It appears here in the form it took for a handout at the May 5, 2015, Morley Birthday Lunch of The Grillparzer Club of the Hoboken Free State.
Schlogl’s was for Vincent Starrett what Christ Cella’s speakeasy in New York was for Christopher Morley, and it was a favorite of Morley’s as well.
Grotesque and disproportionate the scene, distorted in this concave mirror—a strip of olive-colored ceiling above and a flare of light from cut-glass chandeliers, then a strip of brown which I identified as the paintings indigenous to a tavern, then tables and chairs, and men bent over the polished wood in all sorts of easy attitudes. Between them—I like to imagine them sitting down for long evenings over plentiful ravioli and asti spumante—they have put together a grand book.
Buranelli’s skill and charm have made this “essay in constabulary biography” a work of eminent satisfaction. He had wanted to learn the building blocks of playing the flute and learn how to read music, so he briefly attended a class in 10th grade for that purpose. A great believer in playing out, he stated, “You can spend three hours practicing scales by yourself and you’re not really learning; but if you spend ten minutes on stage wondering where all those notes are and how you’re going to make them count, that’s a much better way of learning an instrument. All three band members had planned to go home on the same flight, but only Stan wanted to stay the extra few days after the festival. He gets a chance (and despite trepidations, takes it) to hang on by undertaking work for a clandestine client, the kind his firm would never accept in good times: bootlegger Owney Madden, and his No. Later Woody encounters a new and only slightly more respectable social circle, at a watering-hole for Herald Tribune editors and writers like city editor Stanley Walker and cafe society columnist Lucius Beebe.
Black entertainers performing for strictly white audiences reflects the era’s racial segregation, but the Club’s showcasing of brilliant talent helps make jazz a national treasure. It finally comes to an end a year after it started, with Madden retiring from the rackets in New York and departing for a new life elsewhere. On the far side, back to the wall, was a burly man with a broad hearty face, thick brown hair, and lively eyes full of mischief. At December’s BSI dinner, he observes a World’s Champ and a Fabulous Monster, both of whom he will meet again, but more importantly he makes a new friend for life in Basil Davenport. The still young phenomenon of radio carries not only FDR’s reassuring Fireside Chats into American homes, but also the demagoguery of former Louisiana Governor, now Senator, Huey “Kingfish” Long, and the maverick priest Father Charles Coughlin.
Not only can’t he get started with Diana, he doesn’t even seem to have her attention when they’re together — and is silly enough to look for answers in the movies, as if life were one big screwball comedy.
For some it was Shirley Temple, for others Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald, for more than you could count Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Elmer Davis gives up fiction to write serious foreign policy articles for Harper’s Magazine, about the dangers in store for an indifferent and unprepared America. President Benes, in his radio broadcast last Christmas Eve, said that “Czechoslovakia stands like a lighthouse high on a cliff with the waves crashing around it—a democracy that has the mission to keep the flag of peace, freedom, and toleration flying in Central Europe.” The propaganda German radio stations and newspapers have been pouring out for months sees the country as a “sally port of Bolshevism,” And K.
Many had predicted that this corrupt city of pirates and cutthroats would one day suffer God’s judgment.
She said, “Lord, I have to know this is your will.” She prayed and agonized, needing reassurance that this was the right man. He can, but the majority of your dreams are just gibberish that comes when your brain is defragmenting the things you’ve experienced through the day, kicking all sorts of bizarre things through your mind (Ecclesiastes 5:3). This list comes from those whom I respect the most: the Holy Spirit speaking through the Bible, great Bible scholars and commentators, and friends and fellow pastors.
The odds are not in your favor to simply guess about what you’re supposed to do as a career. Plus, surrender yourself to Jesus before expecting Him to lead you some place to work on His behalf.
When you are searching for God’s will, you need to open the Bible even more than you normally would. When searching for God’s will, find others who have good judgment and will be honest with you.
You’re better off waiting for God’s will having the right job, the right spouse, or the right school than rushing ahead of the Lord and having the wrong job, the wrong spouse, or the wrong school. They are so certain it’s the right thing to do that they’ll marry someone they don’t like and become a dentist even though teeth give them the willies.
We’ve looked at a number of criteria from the Bible and common sense of how you can determine the will of God in any aspect of your life.
This is a magazine that highlights key movements from pop culture, politics and other goodness.
Original creators, Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson will reunite and return for this DC The New 52 themed title. He will complete the story drawn by himself and be credited along the lines of “co-plotter” with Andy Diggle credited for script.

He has opposed Argentina’s gay marriage laws, has been fiercely pro-family, and is also known as an advocate for the poor. Her site, RepublicanGirlProbs, grew as an online hub for young people with right-of-center views to congregate and speak truth to power. The spending reductions are approximately $85.4 billion during fiscal year 2013, with similar cuts for years 2014 through 2021.
I said that I would not think of asking, but he insisted on giving me a few recent examples of the Writings About the Writings, and then proceeded to hand me a typescript copy of his essay “The Adventure of the Worst Man in London,” which he signed. Smith had given me, and recounting to my associates in The Creeping Men my glorious encounter with this wonderful person. This week I cast a wider net, and did find one copy for sale at the Amazon website -- for an utterly appalling $2000 (plus shipping). This time, perhaps because I was reading with intent, I noticed how well you delineated among the Irregulars in the tone and rhythm of their speech.
They might linger here for hours, unaware that the deepening gray outdoors was brought on by something more unalterable than soot; unmindful, too, of the pounding of iron wheels high up on iron trestles, or the clanging of street cars, or the churning roar of motor trucks. At any given hour, you’d hear Frank Zappa, Duke Ellington, Phil Ochs… Frank Zappa would be on for an interview, then they’d play Schoenberg … no rhyme or reason, no sense to anything … it was just music.
We did a lot of soundtrack work for radio dramas and a lot of it was in Halifax.” From that point forward, Stan’s reputation grew as the six albums produced during his lifetime were released. This will teach you how to fingerpick.” Garnet recalled, “I remember sitting on the front step one afternoon.
Member of Hudson Dusters gang, convicted twice of safecracking with 13 arrests total, including one for murder.
And as winter approaches Woody makes a third discovery that will change his life for good, this time at the Harvard Club library: Vincent Starrett’s brand-new and magically evocative book, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes.
Woody takes a tentative step into cafe society himself one night, at El Morocco, and steps on the toes of a beautiful girl who (unlike him) is quite at home there. Cohan, the Broadway hyphenate, a composer-playwright-actor-producer-theater owner, and the only person ever awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor for a song, the rousing World War I anthem, “Over There.” Cohan made the Oak Room his pre-theater headquarters, his preferred table being a booth in its northwest corner. While Elmer Davis worries about a native despot poised for the ’36 elections, Woody’s worries are closer to home.
For me, it was one romantic comedy of William Powell’s after another until my mind turned to mush.
Yet Ambrose Converse is also his most important client now, as if Jimmy Stewart had gone to work for old buzzard Potter in It’s a Wonderful Life. But for them both, 1937 is their newlywed year — out on the town, taking in the movies, seeking out the coolest jive joints with the hottest jazz, and going dancing with the Age of Swing in full blast. But at the same time, the Lord has individual plans for each person that are as varied and unique as snowflakes. It might work for the NFL, but if I’m making a life decision, I want more direction than heads or tails. A lot of these extraordinary methods that people use to determine God’s will are reserved for when He speaks to chosen prophets. I think we’ll be surprised when we get to heaven and God pulls back the veil; we’ll be a witness to the cosmic battle between good and evil and see that God didn’t always get what He wanted. For starters, the law of God can help you discern whether He wants you to do one thing or another. If they’re blessed like Joseph in Egypt and you can see the hand of God is over them, they’re probably good picks for counselors.
When you first turn one on, it can’t tell you immediately your location or which way you need to go. I believe I am in the middle of God’s will right now.” That is indeed a wonderful place to be, but chances are that at some point in your life, you will need a course adjustment. This wartime work led her to return to the Mount Holyoke English department, as a teacher of English as a foreign language and of composition. Things get more challenging when Pat met Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own. The downside these newfound powers he had been honing does not help in this issue as he was kidnapped and psychologically tortured by the First Lantern.
While all this was going on through the start of spring, the weather patterns around the globe also changed.
Daniel will take the reigns on the scripts for the remainder of this first story-arc of Action Comics. She said “It’s great that there are so many young people here.” The Breitbart News gathering of these brilliant young minds was put together by Bethany Bowra, the 16-year-old blogger extraordinaire who gave the opening prayer for CPAC.
As much as that, I liked reading about the reasons that emerged for some of your choices -- it all made the novel much richer. They were placid and comfortable even as that old patron at the third table, un vieux, if ever there was one, who had sat in that self-same chair thirty years or so, save for the time lost in the distraction of home and business, partaking of his hasenpfeffer with paprika, etwas ganz feines, pulling lazily at his long filler havana, sampling now and then his goblet of Rudesheimer. Fiaschetti, who is still only in the middle forties, was the son of a Roman bandmaster and is himself a musician.
Indeed there is none of the Philo Vance esthete about Mike; this book would cause the cultured Vance many a painful shudder—partly, perhaps, because it is written so much better than any of Mr. You trade freedom for information, says Fiaschetti, and remarks with his seasoned wisdom of the world that freedom is always a valuable commodity.
By this time, most fans in our little circle knew about Garnet’s brother, the iconic Stan Rogers, and his tragic early passing. Garnet was already home when a television news broadcast told about the flash fire that trapped Stan during an emergency landing, killing him presumably of smoke inhalation.

References in this article to recent excavations are to the work of the Brooklyn group.) 1    Margaret Benson  In the nineteenth century, Egyptian archaeology, as a male dominated occupation, was not prepared for Margaret Benson when, in 1895, she achieved the distinction of being the first woman to gain permission to conduct her own excavation in Egypt. For the green and rather innocent Woody, Madden, DeMange, and the work prove quite an education.
Then decades later, in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1984 movie The Cotton Club, its life and times were recreated superbly, with Bob Hoskins and Fred Gwynne playing Owney Madden and Frenchy DeMange. Its big room, mahogany, brass and mirrors with a forty-foot bar, served as clubhouse for Trib reporters and editors.
It took him back at one leap to the ambrosial nights of drinking and endless argument, when all philosophies had been probed and all the world’s problems settled, that he had known in that homely place.
Offering a fine view of all comings and goings, it became known as the Cohan Corner, where the great man was courted by theatrical types looking for work.
A man at a nearby booth offered breadsticks, which were declined, and the group decamped to form a picket line in front of the hotel. But the movie Woody saw there that night has lasted: The Thin Man, starring William Powell and Myrna Loy.
But when I walked into a jive joint with Diana, nobody took me for a rootietoot, let alone a lawyer. One such man was Lewis Galdy, who was born in France but left for the New World in search of religious freedom.
But it doesn’t always happen, so we have to do our best to search out—and be in—God’s will for the sake of His kingdom.
You might not like what He’s about to show you, but make up your mind that by His grace you will do it before you even know what it is.

This dramedy had an original plot filled with wonderful chemistry, characters and controlled chaos. Macy, Annika Marks, Moon Bloodgood and Rhea Perlman star in this r-rated deep-philosophy flick.
This issue played a bit as “It’s A Wonderful Life,” in an alternate world in which Alex survived and Kyle tired to be with her. From the West coast, to the East coast, by the end of the month the tennis world came together in South Beach for the annual Sony Open tournament. He said the group avoids social issues while focusing on fiscal matters and providing space for meetings, speakers, and debates at universities. Thirty years—that went back almost to antiquity in Chicago, where the calendar began anno incendi, in fact this very house had remained unchanged since the day that it was reared upon smoldering embers and charred walls, and if one dug deep enough the spade would strike bricks and debris that are all that remain to tell of the great fire—as in ancient Troy.
For sixteen years he was a New York police detective, and in his six years’ command of the Dago Squad he sent twelve murderers to the chair. It was the very same plane Garnet had flown home a couple of days earlier.  “It could have been any one or all of us,” Garnet told me. A thirty year old semi-invalid of a distinguished English family, she had the rare good luck to ask for the concession to a site that seemed unimportant and a site that no one else wanted.
Formed alliance with Tammany Hall chieftain Jimmy Hines, went into bootlegging including many speakeasies and night clubs. Kidnapped and held for ransom by “Mad Dog” Coll in 1931 (an unwise career move on the latter’s part).
Bradford, another Thin Man imitation, had come out while Diana was in Europe, but when she got back I took her to My Man Godfrey at Radio City. And she said, I will go.” When you pray about whom to marry and you flip the Bible open and this is the place where your finger lands—that’s a pretty strong indicator. And He will open doors—for ministry, for opportunity, for careers, for relationships—you just need to ask. The Bible says the just shall live by faith, so trust that God has a plan for you and that He’s going to show it to you in His time. Yet here it was, our home for some nine months, and a home we had chosen for ourselves when low room-choosing numbers allowed the choice. Thirty years—and he might sit there another thirty years, toying with his hasenbraten and spaetzle, pulling at his long havana, if life could be endured that long again without the Rudesheimer. We had two drummers, two bass players, a sitar player … For God’s sake, we had an interpretive dancer at the side of the stage who wore black tights and whiteface.” Garnet was part of the band and played local gigs, but still in high school, he couldn’t do road dates. Then as I started thinking of him as a pudgy intellectual, he said something to Gene Tunney across the table about their boxing a few rounds at the Yale Club before coming to Cella’s.
I might have a thousand op-tions you know nothing about.” Don’t corner the Lord by using this kind of method. Some people have all kinds of different fleeces that they put out for the Lord, and sometimes it’s not bad to say, “All right, Lord. We think you have gifts in those areas.” So through collective counsel of godly people, I moved in this direction. But while you’re waiting patiently for new directions, continue to do the work at hand with all your heart.
As it picks up another satellite, it will give you more accurate directions because of its ability to triangulate your position. But now they can drill from sophisticated ships that make constant corrections for the motion.
This is where some of the month’s breaking news first gets reported before making it into the pages of the following issue of CBN.
This film was wonderfully rendered and perfectly set up for plenty of Oscar recognition from top to bottom. That prize went to local hometown resident, Serena Williams who won her 6th Miami trophy making her the most decorated female tennis athlete in the Miami Sony Open tournament history. From the big names: Palin, Romney, Paul, Perry, and Santorum these names might have been the headliners, but these young individuals are the future of this political party and social media movement.
What could be more genuine than the tale of the spaghetti-joint keeper who did not report the murder until mid-afternoon because to do so earlier would have spoiled his luncheon business, and he had already bought his supplies for that meal. He wasn’t leaving a phone number, so I believe he was using pay phones en route and there was no way for me to reassure him. She worked there for only three seasons from 1895 to 1897 and she published The Temple of Mut in Asher in 1899 2 with Janet Gourlay, who joined her in the second season. Powell was a stockbroker down on his luck, plucked out of a hobo jungle to butler for the nuttiest family on Fifth Avenue.
I’m going to look for providential evidence.” But we can get into a pattern of throwing out fleeces to test God’s will, never willing to go with the answer from the fleece the night before. Many fail to fulfill the present will of God for their lives because they are longing for something different.
Must have been a fun drive home…” We heard the story referred to at the Cabin Concert, but I won’t reveal the details and spoil the fun for future audience members. As Marta digs into this dark underworld, she will test her own strength, relying on her resourcefulness, determination and family ties like never before.
Of the four albums Garnet sent me, I like the studio albums, Firefly (2001) and Shining Thing (2004), the best. There might be a time for it, but avoid getting yourself into the habit of throwing out fleeces.
You might flip your Bible open and plop your finger down where it says Isaiah walked naked and barefoot three years (Isaiah 20:3). If you see this film, the only way to full embrace yourself in the world of Oz and what the director envisioned is to spend the extra cash and watch it through the 3D glasses lens. Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, Red Robin and Catwoman each had a tie-in to this overall theme for the month.
I went online for one of these older stories: “Two years ago after wearing out four Volvos I got to the point where I didn’t want to support my mechanic’s extravagant lifestyle,” he said, without even a hint of a chuckle. The next chapter of this tale was that towards the end of the month, Joshua Hale Fialkov surprised everyone when he went on social media to share that he was walking away from writing Green Lantern Corps & Red Lanterns (even before these books were released) due to the equivalent of creative differences by management. One night he returned with this weird look in his eyes like Charlton Heston as Moses with his hair turned white, coming down from the mountain.
The Green Lantern mythology was shaken, but DC came back with the final chapter of this current saga, when the company announced that Joshua Hale Fialkov would be succeeded by Charles Soule on Red Lanterns. Viewers will not want to learn answers to the questions that this pilot posed to its audience. Benson was a learned man with a wide knowledge of history and a serious concern for the education of the young. He helped to edit the correspondence of Queen Victoria for publication, contributed poetry to The Yellow Book, and wrote the words to the anthem "Land of Hope and Glory". Each career advancement for him meant a move for the family so her childhood was spent in a series of official residences until she went to Oxford in 1883.
One of her tutors commented to his sister that he was sorry Margaret had not been able to read for "Greats" in the normal way. She participated in dramatics, debating and sports but her outstanding talent was for drawing and painting in watercolor.
Her skill was so superior he thought she should be appointed drawing mistress if she remained at Lady Margaret Hall for any length of time. She began a work titled "The Venture of Rational Faith" which occupied her thoughts for many years. From the titles alone they suggest a young woman who was deeply concerned with problems of society and the spirit and this preoccupation with the spiritual was to be one of her concerns throughout the rest of her life. In some of her letters from Egypt it is clear that she was attempting to understand something of the spiritual life of the ancient Egyptians, not a surprising interest for the daughter of a churchman like Edward White Benson. She made her first voyage to Egypt in 1894 because the warm climate was considered to be beneficial for those who suffered from her ailments. Wintering in Egypt was highly recommended at the time for a wide range of illnesses ranging from simple asthma to "mental strain." Lord Carnarvon, Howard Carter's sponsor in the search for the tomb of Tutankhamun, was one of the many who went to Egypt for reasons of health.
I don't feel as if I should have really had an idea of Egypt at all if I hadn't stayed here -- the Bas-reliefs of kings in chariots are only now beginning to look individual instead of made on a pattern, and the immensity of the whole thing is beginning to dawn -- and the colours, oh my goodness!
Her interest was maintained by the variety of animal and bird life for at home in England she had been surrounded by domestic animals and had always been keen on keeping pets. Edouard Naville, the Swiss Egyptologist who was working at the Temple of Hatshepsut at Dier el Bahri for the Egypt Exploration Fund, wrote to Henri de Morgan, Director of the Department of Antiquities, on her behalf. From her letters of the time, it is clear that this was one of the most exciting moments of Margaret Benson's life because she was allowed to embark on what she considered a great adventure. Hogarth 12 gave advice in the direction of the digging and Newberry was singled out for his advice, suggestions and correction as well as "unwearied kindness." Margaret's brother, Fred, helped his inexperienced sister by supervising some of the work as well as making a measured plan of the temple which is reproduced in the publication. He organized a small excavation at Chester to search for Roman legionary tomb stones built into the town wall and the results of his efforts were noticed favorably by Theodore Mommsen, the great nineteenth century classicist, and by Mr. Benson went on to excavate at Megalopolis in Greece for the British School at Athens and published the result of his work in the Journal of Hellenic Studies. His first love was Greece and its antiquities and it is probable that concern for his sister's health was a more important reason for him joining the excavation than an interest in the antiquities of Egypt. Its isolation and the arrangement with the Temple of Mut enclosed on three sides by its own sacred lake made it seem even more romantic.
Most of the travelers and scholars who had visited the precinct or carried out work there left some notes or sketches of what they saw and these were useful as references for the new excavation. 17 On her return to Egypt at the end of November, 1894, she stopped at Mena House hotel at Giza and for a short time at Helwan, south of Cairo. Helwan was known for its sulphur springs and from about 1880 it had become a popular health resort, particularly suited for the treatment of the sorts of maladies from which Margaret suffered. On the second of January she wrote to her mother: "I don't think much will be found of little things, only walls, bases of pillars, and possibly Cat-statues. I shall feel rather like --'Massa in the shade would lay While we poor niggers toiled all day' -- for I am to have a responsible overseer, and my chief duty apparently will be paying. 18 She is described as riding out from the Luxor Hotel on donkey-back with bags of piaster pieces jingling for the Saturday payday. At the first (northern) gate it was necessary for Margaret Benson to clear ten or twelve feet of earth to reach the paving stones at the bottom.
The statue is now in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo 19 but Margaret was given a cast of it to take home to England. 20 The government had appointed an overseer who spent his time watching the excavation for just such finds. The statue had been found on the pavement level, apparently in situ, suggesting to the excavator that this was good evidence for an earlier dating for the temple than was generally believed at the time.
This was probably not the picture of an "important" English Egyptologist that the Americans had expected.
Time was spent repositioning Sakhmet statues which appeared to be out of place based on what was perceived as a pattern for their arrangement.
In the spirit of neatness and attempting to leave the precinct in good order, they also repaired some of the statues with the aid of an Italian plasterer, hired especially for that purpose. For a fancy dress ball at the Luxor Hotel she appeared costumed as the goddess Mut, wearing a vulture headdress which Naville praised for its ingenuity. The resources in the souk of Luxor for fancy dress were nonexistent but Margaret was resourceful enough to find material with which to fabricate a costume based, as she said, on "Old Egyptian pictures."  The results of the first season would have been gratifying for any excavator.
Her original intention of digging in a picturesque place where she had been told there was nothing much to be found was beginning to produce unexpected results. The Benson party arrived in Egypt for the second season early in January of 1896. After a trip down to, they reached Luxor Aswan around the twenty-sixth and the work began on the thirtieth. They were to remain close friends for much of Margaret's life, visiting and travelling together often.
Originally built of mud brick, like many of the structures in the Precinct of Mut, the south face of both halves of the wall was sheathed with stone one course thick no later than the Ramesside Period. Sometime after the temple fell into disuse the remaining mud brick half on the west was partly hollowed out and used as a dwelling or magazine (which may account for the rows of pots Margaret thought to be rebuilding)                                                           The Excavations: Second PartWhat is most important about the description of the 1896 season is the demonstration of attention that was being paid to building techniques, to additive construction and to possible rebuilding. The end result of the activity is not explained at that point and the location of the corner not given but it can probably be identified with the southeast cornerstone of the Mut Temple mentioned later in a description of the search for foundation deposits.
In the clearance of the second court a feature described as a thin wall built out from the north wall was found in the northeast corner. It was later interpreted by the nineteenth century excavators as part of the arrangement for a raised cloister and it was not until recent excavation that it was identified as the lower part of the wall of a small chapel, built against the north wall of the court. It is more probable that the stone floors had been dug out and undermined in the search for antiquities.
This included the reconstruction of some of the statues as found and the moving of others in a general attempt to neaten the appearance of the temple. The upper part was in relatively good condition except for the left shoulder and arm and it was eventually awarded to the excavators. Another important discovery she made on the south side of the court was a series of sandstone relief blocks representing the arrival at Thebes of Nitocris, daughter of Psamtik I, as God's Wife of Amun.25 At some time during the season Margaret was made aware of the possibility that foundation deposits might still be in place. They contain a number of small objects including containers for food offerings, model tools and model bricks or plaques inscribed with the name of the ruler.
This chamber has been re-cleared in recent years and proved to be a small rectangular room with traces of an erased one-line text around the four walls. Aside from the pleasure of the find, it was important to have the objects at hand for study, comparison and the copying of inscriptions.
I think the winter has just crystallized all the cure set up before.28 Apparently the work of excavation agreed with Margaret.
Certainly the climate of Luxor in February must have been good for her and the occupation of supervising the discovery of exciting objects was not proving too taxing.
