To think, there was a time when Game of Thrones merchandising was something of a rarity. The biggest addition to the Game of Thrones merchandise catalog this year is the official Game of Thrones Monopoly , which is coming next month. Thus, we already know the winner of Game of Thrones Monopoly : capitalism. Let me know if Game of Thrones Risk ever becomes a thing. ( Update: Thank you all for letting me know that Game of Thrones Risk is now actually a thing. (My colleague Adi Robertson has already provided the best counterpoint: both Game of Thrones and Monopoly can drag on forever, and you feel disgusted with humanity by the time you're finished.
Today I sing jazz. I was introduced to jazz by my father, who would put in a CD of Ella Fitzgerald or Louis Armstrong as we drove around town and encourage me to sing along. In his office, there is a framed poster of "A Great Day in Harlem," the iconic 1958 photo of 57 jazz greats, standing in front of a brownstone in the famous neighborhood. And it was right here in my back yard, in the area now known as South Central L. A. The Dunbar Hotel was once the epicenter of African-American culture and society in Los Angeles. Today, it is a nice brick building that houses seniors. At the front entrance, inlaid in stone is "Hotel Somerville," the structure's original name. There is a neon sign reading "Hotel Dunbar" and two historical markers covered by green leaves and branches. Across the street is the "Central Avenue Jazz Park. The hotel is surrounded by the Somerville Apartments, a subsidized housing complex named after the hotel's founder. As I peer into the empty, whitewashed galleries of the Dunbar, I notice an older man in a puffy Raiders' coat, who I saw earlier in the courtyard. "Is it a nice place to live. "Oh, sure it's a nice place to live," he says, as we both reverentially gaze at the building.
BOISE, Idaho — Janny Wing usually works on Wednesdays, but on March 18, she took the day off for a board meeting at Opera Idaho. That afternoon, she was sitting at her computer when her phone buzzed with a text message from one of her colleagues at Ada County Paramedics, where she has worked as an paramedic for nearly 10 years. She called her husband, also an EMT with Ada County Paramedics, asking if he'd heard. It's wasn't the first time Wing had gotten a text like that. She saw Sellers only a week before, and Sellers seemed fine. "Nothing would have made me think she was even sad," Wing said. "Hindsight is 20/20 but even in hindsight, as a co-worker, nothing from either Brian or Donna would have made me think they were suicidal. When Wing first heard about Sellers, the disbelief took a long time to fade into sadness, but when she got the text about Peterson, "I skipped the shock and went straight to the crying. Two suicides in the past six months have left Ada County Paramedics reeling and uncertain on how to prevent more. Wing has a bouncy personality complete with an easy laugh and a big smile. " Her co-workers describe her as a "take-no-shit hard-ass" and when calls get tough, the saying goes, "Channel your inner Janny. "I have this picture on my wall at my house.
