    Catullus Poem 58, An Original Adaptation of an Ancient Roman Love Poem

    Johnny! It's Lesbia*, our Lesbia,
    The Lesbia, that girl Stanley loved,
    Loved more than self and all he calls his own,
    Now at the Great Hall, Chicago, Union Station,
    Up and down the polished marble floors,
    She goes high-heeled, black boots,
    Sports a short skirt, and an open blouse.
    Corn, she husks corn,
    For every last one of them,
    For any spoiled son of Lincoln with a dollar in his pocket.

    Carmen 58 (in Latin by CATULLUS)

    Caeli, Lesbia nostra, Lesbia illa.
    illa Lesbia, quam Catullus unam
    plus quam se atque suos amavit omnes,
    nunc in quadriviis et angiportis
    glubit magnanimi Remi nepotes. read more »

    The Missed Free Throws

    Tim Murnane was born to parents who lived in a small brick bungalow in a lower-middle class neighborhood in Chicago. His father worked as an electrician for Commonwealth Edison Company and his mother stayed home, a not uncommon calling for a housewife and mother following the end of World War II.

    After a peaceful childhood, life for Tim as a teen-ager became more complicated. His father loved all sports, even those he didn't fully understand, and he encouraged Tim to play all of them, even the sports he himself had been unable to play due to an injury as a child. read more »

    In the city of Chicago, fires from hell raged at 9: 40 am when someone pulled the alarm,
    Firefighters were sent out to the left when the fires flared to the right,
    One flame caught onto another where screams were heard from fright, read more »
