The Palestinian murderers of the Rabbis in Israel have been summarily executed at the scene of the crime. Then the Israeli government ordered the homes of the murderers to be destroyed leaving wives, children and elderly people homeless now. This cruel vengeful terrorist action is presumably to stop so-called terrorism. Creating more homeless people, creating chaos and contributing to the already beleaguered people are not the answer to intractable problems of Israel and the Palestinians

Olive Kitteridge
by Elizabeth Strout
Random House (Paperback) 2008.  Winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
A wonderful book about a strong conflicted woman living in Maine demonstrates the complexity of human behavior and spirit. Olive may be of a mixed race and is so good and so awful all at the same time.  Her color is darker than most and her character equally mixed. She is so dense and yet so insightful that this reader was constantly bewildered and delighted by her.
