A month before Haiti’s devastating earthquake, prominent musician Theodore “Lolo” Beaubrun and a few friends were summoned by spirits who tried to warn them about the impending cataclysm.

“They told us to pray for Haiti because many people would die,” says Mr Beaubrun the frontman of the group Boukman Eksperyans.

Scottish T-shirt supporting anyone but England – Harmless fun or Racism

Grampian Police obviously have their priorities right, with all the increase in crime in Aberdeen they are managing to bring the national newspapers back to the city for another reason.  Once again Scotland fail to qualify for a World Cup and unfortunately there is only one team for the tartan army to support any one who plays England.  Now this is now seen as Racism according to the Police even though no member of the public complained.  Technically they are no doubt correct.  Is it not time we put the past behind us, will the Scots ever support England in a major finals, or will this banter go forever more.  So who benefits?  Well some good free publicity for the shop, and whoever made the t-shirt will make a fortune, reports say they are now online and all the Irish, Aussie’s, Welsh, French, Dutch, German, Swiss, etc are all buying them.  hahahahha.  Read the full article

Great Movie Speech – Charlie Chaplin in ‘The Great Dictator’

Hope… I’m sorry but I don’t want to be an Emperor – that’s not my business – I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that.

We all want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone.

The way of life can be free and beautiful.

But we have lost the way.

To Kill a Mocking Bird – Closing Arguement

Atticus Finch delivers his Closing Argument at the Trial of Tom Robinson

Atticus: To begin with, this case should never have come to trial. The State has not produced one iota of medical evidence that the crime Tom Robinson is charged with ever took place. It has relied instead upon the testimony of two witnesses whose evidence has not only been called into serious question on cross examination, but has been flatly contradicted by the defendant. Now there is circumstantial evidence to indicate that Mayella Ewell was beaten savagely by someone who led, almost exclusively, with his left. And Tom Robinson now sits before you, having taken “The Oath” with the only good hand he possesses – his right.
