Dr. King had a vision of cooperation

In the movie Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, the rebels try to use the young heroine Katniss as a pivot point to rally others to their cause.  They put Katniss in front of cameras and give her scripted lines to read through.  She's worthless at that kind of acting.  The

Staging the belated classic "The Great Gatsby" at Tacoma Little Theatre

I'm about to tell you a story, only one detail of which will be slightly untrue. See if you can guess which it is. Between 1922 and 1925, author F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote a novel called Winter Dreams. It was published in April 1925, selling less than 20,000 copies and earning
