Parzival talked to God every hour, the tone becoming less and less formal. Weary from deciding the fates of small plant specimens, he cut little figures out of paper and burned them in a random order, inventing appalling reasons for each one’s demise after the fact. When the neighbors’ house caught fire one evening, he goaded the flames eagerly, wishing they would shoot up higher and higher into the night. He saw his head cut off with an enemy’s sword or his internal organs run through with spears. After a few days of suicidal rapture, he realized that lingering deaths could occupy him for a much longer time, the details becoming more grotesque every time he went through a particular scenario. One day his grandfather told him death is already sitting on the tongue of a man about to die and so when his cousin died some weeks later, he rushed into the room and pried open the corpse’s jaws, looking into the mouth for a small black figure. Hildegard speaks: I see between words the resplendent force that holds them together. It goes back beyond the old books past the words men speak of the life that rushes through thoughts. Fragmented gossip of the high city is caught in the net my hand makes when it writes the words on parchments. The chatter of a love that reaches from the outermost regions of human imagination to the innermost center of being touches me through all.
SPARTA, Ky. -- As Matt Crafton (Truck Series), Brad Keselowski (Xfinity Series) and Kyle Busch (Sprint Cup Series) drove to Victory Lane here during NASCAR's triple-header weekend, another major winner emerged. Louisville-based Crosley brands, in its first year awarding jukeboxes to top drivers at Kentucky Speedway, received unprecedented exposure for its products. "The racing was cool, but that jukebox is cool as hell," Keselowski said Friday before thanking the track's general manager, Mark Simendinger. Bo LeMastus, who drives full-time in the ARCA Racing Series, ran a late model at Nashville's Fair Grounds Speedway on Saturday night during NASCAR's Quaker State 400 in Kentucky. "I can't tell you how many people came up to me out of nowhere and said, 'Oh my God, I saw Crosley during the races,'" said LeMastus, a Jasper, Ind. LeMastus came to Louisville as a Crosley intern in 1984 and never left. The company is headquartered at 1220 E. Oak Street, where it has seen recent growth selling record players, furniture and now, of course, jukeboxes. "The excitement for the trophy, especially for Brad, was a nice surprise," said Crosley president Keith Starr. As he crossed the finish line in Friday night's 300-mile Xfinity Series race, his spotter keyed the microphone, saying, "You got yourself a jukebox. "The average guy doesn't wake up in the morning and say, 'You know, I think I'm going to buy a jukebox,'" LeMastus said.
It would take them 12 years to finally arrest the man they say killed the 63-year-old great-grandfather and concealed his corpse. That meant a dozen years of dead ends — grilling neighbors, poring over bank records and carefully preserving every strand of hair and scrap of latex that might be a clue to his murder — until the case finally broke in 2013.

For the detectives in the special investigations unit of the Dallas Police Department who spend much of their time pursuing unsolved cases, the Berry case is a major success story. The Dallas detectives don’t like to call unsolved homicides “cold. “If it’s a murder case, it’s always open, whether it’s cold, hot, lukewarm or whatever,” said homicide Sgt. The Dallas Police Department used to have four detectives and a sergeant dedicated to solving cold cases, but the unit was disbanded after the detectives retired. “They are important cases because they are unsolved, and there are a lot of them,” said retired Sgt.
