OCTOBER 27, 2011


The news as
I see it and the views as I want them.

October 27 is … Sylvia Plath Day

Sylvia Plath (October 27,
1932 – February 11, 1963) was an American poet, novelist and short story
writer. Born in Massachusetts, she studied at Smith College
and Newnham College, Cambridge before receiving acclaim as a
professional poet and writer. She married fellow poet Ted Hughes
in 1956 and they lived together first in the United States and then England,
having two children together: Frieda
and Nicholas. Following a long struggle with
depression and a marital separation, Plath committed suicide in 1963.
Controversy continues to surround the events of her life and death, as well as
her writing and legacy.

Plath is credited with advancing the
genre of confessional poetry and is best known for her
only two collections published in her lifetime: The Colossus and Other Poems and Ariel.
In 1982, she became the first poet to win a Pulitzer
posthumously, for The Collected Poems. She also wrote The Bell Jar,
a semi-autobiographical novel published shortly before her death

President Obama and his spin unit have finally decided to live on their
own and not in the past. President George W. Bush is no longer their fall guy,
for now at least. At
roughly noon on Tuesday, shortly after Gov. Rick Perry unveiled the tax policy
platform for his presidential campaign, President Obama’s reelection team
offered a response. The Texas Republican and top challenger Mitt Romney wanted
to “shift a greater share of taxes away from large corporations and the
wealthiest onto the backs of the middle class,” the campaign’s press
secretary, Ben LaBolt, emailed reporters.


It was a customary campaign response:
tough-worded, carefully crafted and with a targeted message. Notably, it
excluded mention of the most oft-criticized GOP figure of the last decade:
former President George W. Bush.


From President Obama’s 2008 campaign through the
mid-term elections in 2010, the nation’s 43rd president has served as a
reliable boogeyman. The phrase “Bush’s failed economic policies” was
ingrained in the political lexicon. The “Bush foreign policy” became
synonymous with disastrous adventures overseas. A “return to Bush”
was the threat attached to any perspective Republican candidacy.


And yet, months into the president’s run for a
second term, mentions of Bush have all but disappeared. A review of the
official public statements sent by the campaign from either LaBolt or campaign
manager Jim Messina since late April reveals that the former president has yet
to be mentioned by name. And it’s not because there hasn’t been an opportunity
to do so.


Some days it just doesn’t pay to get into bed.  A British woman bit off more than she could
chew, and now she may go to jail. Authorities say that Maria Betty Top, mother
of four, bit her partner’s testicles during a drunken brawl on Feb. 18 that left
the man bloody, disoriented, and in need of nineteen stitches.

“All options are open and that will include locking you up,” court
official Robin Mairs told Topp in the Newcastle Crown Court, according to the


The unlucky man, 45-year-old Martine Douglas, a
disk jockey from Newcastle, was so horrified that emergency service operators
had difficulty understanding the situation when he called for help, The Sun
reports. “The two had been in a relationship for five years at the time of
this offence. There had been difficulties and turbulence in the past,”
Mairs continued. “They had split up numerous times, getting back together
numerous times. On the day in question, there is no doubt they were very
heavily in drink.”


So heavily “in drink” that, despite
admitting to the nauseating act, Topp says she has trouble accurately recalling
the incident.

Topp will be sentenced Nov. 11, the BBC reports.
Still, she maintains there was bad behavior on both sides. In the woman’s
defense, lawyer Caroline Goodwin described the incidents leading up to the
biting at a hearing, in which she said, “The defendant was on her back
with the victim straddling her.” This broad apparently did not go to
school in New York where she would have learned the proper technique for giving
