I've been in courtrooms before, during three trials of the polygamous radicals led by the infamous Ervil LeBaron who murdered my father, Rulon Allred. They saw him as an obstruction to LeBaron's ambition of establishing himself as "the One Mighty and Strong," who, according to early Mormon prophecy, will come to set God's house in order. One of those trials took place in the same Salt Lake City federal courthouse where I now sit. LeBaron died 30 years ago in Utah's state prison, but for the past two weeks, I've come to watch another tormentor, Brian David Mitchell, cross the courtroom in a gray cloud of piety.
News de stars | Coups, blessures, et côtes cassées Le bandit en col blanc Bernard Madoff a été violenté par un codétenu en décembre, écrit le Wall Street Journal. Après l'agression, l'ancien patron du Nasdaq a dû être admis dans un centre médical où il a été soigné d'une fracture du nez, de côtes cassées et de plaies au visage et au crâne, dit le très sérieux canard, citant un pensionnaire de l'établissement à verrous. Le détail des lésions et traumatismes n'a pu être vérifié, mais un ancien taulard récemment libéré a confirmé la correction dont Bernie avait été victime.
It's past ten o'clock in the evening, a rude hour to knock on someone's front door, but George Wright's attorney has assured me that this is the best time. The TV cameras have gone away. The newspaper reporters have quit. For the man whose recent capture, after forty-one years on the run, ended one of the longest unsolved fugitive cases in criminal history, there might be some semblance of normalcy. So I stroll by moonlight through a wooden gate, down the cobbled entryway of a whitewashed cottage in a Portuguese village, and I knock. There's a faint padding of footsteps; a porch light flips on.

As we approach the new year, I thought it would be appropriate to do a list that combines and ranks entries from a combination of related lists – a summary list.
by Maria Popova What Alice in Wonderland has to do with electromagnetic theory, relativity, and Pluto. “You are a mashup of what you let into your life,” it’s been said . Since creativity is combinatorial , the architecture of mind and character is deeply influenced by the intellectual stimulation we choose to engage with — including the books we read. There is hardly anything more fascinating than the private intellectual diet of genius — like this recently uncovered list of books computing pioneer and early codehacker Alan Turing borrowed from his school library.

by Maria Popova We love iconic graphic designer Saul Bass and have a soft spot for luminaries’ musings on the nature of creativity . Naturally, we’re head over heels with Why Man Creates — a remarkable short documentary from 1968, animated by Bass and alluringly subtitled “a series of explorations, episodes & comments on creativity.” Playful yet profound, the film is a series of sequences that at first appear unconnected but eventually converge into a compelling exploration of (wo)man’s most fundamental impetus to create, featuring such delightful tongue-in-cheek vehicles as this exchange between Michelangelo and da Vinci: Whaddaya doin?” ‘I’m painting the ceiling!
