  5. Watch Now: Race Massacre graves researchers need DNA, genealogies to tie burials to victims Utah Cold Case Coalition Intermountain Forensics is seeking DNA help from anyone who may have relatives from the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Researchers think DNA is the best chance for the case known for now as “burial 27” to be the first conclusively identified victim of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. In a project update Wednesday with reporters, University of Oklahoma archaeologist Kary Stackelbeck expressed optimism the team’s efforts could possibly have “successfully located the first victim of the massacre” after a young Black man was exhumed with two bullets from a potter’s field corner of Oaklawn Cemetery.

  6. dramyhsturgis: Happy Valentine’s Day to all! Hail Bishop Valentine, whose day this is, All the air is thy Diocese, And all the chirping choristers And other birds are thy parishioners, Thou marryest ever year The lyric Lark, and the grave whispering Dove, The Sparrow that neglects his life for love, The household bird, with the red stomacher; Thou maks’t the black bird speed as soon, As doth the Goldfinch, or the Halycon; The husband cock looks out, and straight is sped, And meets his wife, which brings her feather-bed. This day more cheerfully than ever shine, This day, which might enflame thy self, old Valentine. Till now, thou warmd'st with mutiplying loves Two larks, two sparrows, or two doves, All that is nothing unto this, For thou this day couplest two Phoenixes; Thou mak'st a Taper see What the sun never saw, and what the Ark (Which was of fowls, and beasts, the cage and park,) Did not contain, one bed contains, through thee, Two Phoenixes, whose joined breasts Are unto one another mutual nests, Where motion kindles such fires, as shall give Young Phoenixes, and yet the old shall love. Whose love and courage never shall decline, But make the whole year through, thy day, O Valentine…. - from John Donne, “An Epithalamion, Or Marriage Song, On the Lady Elizabeth and Count Palatine Being Married on St. Valentine’s Day” View the full post.

  12. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! October 31: Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley (1818) Quote 1: My heart was fashioned to be susceptible of love and sympathy, and when wrenched by misery to vice and hatred, it did not endure the violence of the change without torture such as you cannot even imagine. Quote 2: But it is even so; the fallen angel becomes a malignant devil. Yet even that enemy of God and man had friends and associates in his desolation; I am alone. View the full post.
  13. October 30: The Mary Shelley Club by Goldy Moldavsky (2021) Quote 1: And when you’re truly scared, there’s nowhere to hide - no private school, no popularity, no trust fund. It’s just you and your most base emotion. Fear is where the truth lies. Quote 2: But there was something wrong with me. It clawed at my insides, desperate to get out. Quote 3: If you want this to be over, just make sure she screams. View the full post.
  14. October 29: Genesis by Bernard Beckett (2006) Quote: In the end, living is defined by dying. Book-ended by oblivion, we are caught in the vice of terror, squeezed to bursting by the approaching end. Fear is ever-present, waiting to be called to the surface. View the full post.
  15. October 28: The Gemma Doyle Trilogy (2003-2007) by Libba Bray Quote from A Great and Terrible Beauty (2003): What frightens you? What makes the hair on your arms rise, your palms sweat, the breath catch in your chest like a wild thing caged? Is it the dark? A fleeting memory of a bedtime story, ghosts and goblins and witches hiding in the shadows? Is it the way the wind picks up just before a storm, the hint of wet in the air that makes you want to scurry home to the safety of your fire? Or is it something deeper, something much more frightening, a monster deep inside that you’ve glimpsed only in pieces, the vast unknown of your own soul where secrets gather with a terrible power, the dark inside?
