BOOK OF THE WEEK
The Death of Caesar
by Barry Strauss
I thought I knew a lot about the events surrounding the murder of Caesar on March 15, 44 B.C.; but this very readable book if full of information, much of which I did not know.
MOVIES OF THE WEEK
The Edge of Seventeen
I saw this film last week and rather than use words to tell you how much I liked this film, I thought I would just show you one scene, so you could decide for yourself if it would be a film you would like.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Last week I featured Alison Krauss singing When You Say Nothing at All (1995), which was a sweet song. This week I thought I would change things up a bit with one of my favorites, the Wicked Mr. Pickett.

EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
Not many people had a rougher start in life than Mr. T; yet he still made something of himself and we can follow his example.
Mr. T was born in Chicago, Illinois, the youngest son in a family with twelve children. His father, Nathaniel Tureaud, Sr., was a minister. Mr. T, with his four sisters and seven brothers, grew up in a three-room apartment in one of the city’s housing projects, in a poorly constructed building, in an area with high levels of environmental pollutants and the largest concentration of poverty in America. While growing up, Mr. T regularly witnessed murder, rape, and other crimes, but attributes his survival and later success to his will to do well and his mother’s love. (Source: Wikipedia)
