" Bea, a manager at a big-box chain store in Maine, likes to keep a professional atmosphere in the store. But with a staff struggling to get by on $6 to $8 an hour, sometimes things get messy. When one of her employees couldn’t afford to buy her daughter a prom dress, Bea couldn’t shake the feeling that she was implicated by the injustice. Andrew, a manager in a large food business in the Midwest, told me about the moral dilemma of employing people who can’t take care of their families even though they are working hard. He described how it changed his job, tainted it, to be supervising people who couldn’t get by on what he paid them.

The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe Illustrated by Gustave Dor

"'T is some visiter," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door— Only this, and nothing more. " Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.

NEW: There is now a more accurate version of the Hunt translation posted by William Barker. Roald Dahl - The Official Web Site.
