Sue Grafton´s death means
there will be no ´Z´ finale in
her alphabet detective series

Louisville Courier Journal [KY], by Bailey Loosemore

Original Article

The death of internationally acclaimed author Sue Grafton means at least one mystery will remain unsolved. Grafton, a Louisville native, was known globally for her alphabet detective series featuring investigator Kinsey Millhone. She died Thursday night following a battle with cancer. Grafton´s series began with "A is for Alibi" in 1982 and continued through "Y is for Yesterday," released in August 2017. Her last book, "Z is for Zero," was scheduled for release in fall 2019, according to the author´s website. But her husband, Steve Humphrey, said Grafton had yet to start writing the novel. "She was trying to come

Comments:
I didn´t know she was ill. May she rest in peace. Maybe they should look again at her writings - Agatha Christie secretly wrote her ´last novel´ decades before her death so it would have a finale.

Fond memories of listening to her audio books pulling the 5th wheel off on a family vacation with my late wife (children and doge in the trailer!)

Hope the family holds to the "...she was adamant that her books would never be turned into movies or TV shows"

"Z" will be published someday. No doubt, she outlined it, put some ideas to paper (electronic, of course) and probably had a few chapters roughed out. Her estate will find them, some years from now. A profession who probably worked closely with her will do the filling in and complete the book. And the book will be madly bought up. You have to know this is going to happen.

I understand she was a good gal. God bless and keep her.

Patterson Park statue honoring national anthem
is defaced, found sprayed with red paint
Baltimore Sun, by Jacques Kelly    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 1/15/2018 9:40:43 PM     Post Reply
A statue paid for with pennies contributed by Baltimore school children more than a century ago was found sprayed with red paint Monday morning. Jennifer Arndt Robinson, executive director of Friends of Patterson Park, said the bronze statue of children holding a scroll to commemorate the writing of the Star Spangled Banner had been damaged by paint. The words “Racist Anthem” were sprayed on a sidewalk near the statue. “We were notified early this morning of the incident,” Robinson said. “We are working with appropriate city officials to make sure it is addressed as quickly as possible.” Robinson said a

Letterman vs Obama:
´Rusty and off their game´

What could seem better than getting David Letterman and President Barack Obama together again and sitting them down in front of an audience to talk for an hour about whatever´s been on their minds since they both left their old jobs? What better fantasy come true for anyone who misses both men terribly? Unfortunately, Letterman´s new show for Netflix, a six-episode series called My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, fails to deliver on its promise, falling flat in its debut. Letterman, who retired so elegantly in 2015, seems only half-engaged here and far too much in the thrall of his

This N.J. town is banning out-of-town drivers

If you want to drive through the small residential streets of Leonia, N.J., you´ll have to move there. Starting Jan. 22, the town will ban all non-residents from driving on 60 of its streets during the morning and evening rush hours. The new rules aim to crack down on urban-dwellers who take shortcuts through the town while following instructions from navigation apps like Waze, Google Maps or Apple — a phenomenon Mayor Judah Zeigler says is causing gridlock, costing money and putting people in danger. "What´s happening with the adoption of Waze and Google Maps and other navigational apps is these

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy

A 6-year-old Florida boy fighting rabies has died, his father said Sunday. Ryker Roque was being kept under anesthesia in an Orlando hospital in a desperate bid to save him from the deadliest virus there is. (Snip) "(I) found a bat, put it in a little bucket, put it on the porch and I had asked my son, ´don´t touch it under any circumstances´," Roque told NBC News. "So, apparently he put his hand in there and touched it and he said it only scratched him, so I frantically googled it real quick and it says to wash his hands

Why is liberal California the
poverty capital of America?
Los Angeles Times, by Kerry Jackson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 1/14/2018 1:58:30 PM     Post Reply
Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income. Given robust job growth and the prosperity generated by several industries, it’s worth asking why California has fallen behind, especially when the state’s per-capita GDP increased approximately twice as much as the U.S. average over the five years ending in

JOHANNESBURG – Members of a South African opposition party stormed into some H&M stores across the country on Saturday to protest a promotional image of a black child wearing a sweatshirt with the words “Coolest monkey in the jungle.” Local media reports said the Economic Freedom Fighters urged shopping malls to evict the Swedish clothing retailer, which has apologized after an outcry in other countries. People have called the image racist and inappropriate. Television footage showed clothing in one of the South African stores scattered everywhere. H&M in South Africa says it had removed the sweatshirt from sale.

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

The real reason Democrats are throwing

The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

Actress and yogurt salesman Jamie Lee Curtis knows exactly whom to blame for a false alarm that told Hawaiians an incoming ballistic missile was detected. It was all President Trump´s fault. Duh. Now, never mind that Trump was in Florida at the time. On the golf course. And forget that Hawaii´s Emergency Management Agency (EMA), run by the Hawaiian state government, apologized for setting off the false alarm when someone pushed the wrong button. In a Saturday afternoon post on Twitter, Curtis attacked Trump, writing "YOU DID THIS!" "This Hawaii missile scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that
