Sophie Kurys dies at 87, star of women's specialist baseball league


On a snowy April day in 1943, a substantial school sophomore from a doing work-class household in Flint, Mich., attempted out for the major leagues. The large-city scouts have been impressed and picked the lightning-rapid teen on the spot — skirt and all.

A month later, just a day shy of 18, Sophie Kurys signed a contract to perform for the All-American Ladies Expert Baseball League, the groundbreaking women's league featured in the 1992 film &quotA League of Their Own.&quot


Americans ignore the mass murder of students that is roiling Mexico


Commentary

Karam's announcement that the college students were almost undoubtedly murdered was a devastating blow to the nationwide psyche Jonathan Bernier Jersey. Until then, Mexicans had nurtured their slim hopes that the college students had been still alive (hopes stoked by the parents of the missing, who have tenaciously agitated on behalf of their kids).


Poem 29 - Done?


Are we done yet?
Can we stop, pet?
Now I will sweat
If this does not set!


Poem 28 - A Moment


in one quiet moment
tea in hand, hot and soothing
nothing more I ask
not presents or applause, please
just time for only myself


Poem 27 - Lady Leaders


Leaders talking, planning for camp next weekend
Talking leads to venting - does your troop do it?
Others who aren't reliable call to say
"I can't come now" - last minute shuffle to find
Who can come, ladies?

Abrasive is how they say we are being
That's what happens when we are strong together
Spunky women taking our girls for a ride
Growing greater together we can do it!
We'll do anything!


Poem 26 - Picture Perfect


a single green eye
grinning from the darkness round
peers out at the world


Poem 25 - Lykopis


Before gunpowder and things that go 'bang'
Mankind still knew how to make a kill
With sticks of wood and strings that went 'twang'
No king tells us that we must master this skill
With long sticks taller than a grown man
That to fail in our duty means a bill
In modern times shooting a bow is weird
Not something that we practice from our youth
And places where archery is cheered
Would have techniques the elders would find uncouth
Let them take aim


Poem 24 - Greek to Me


Oh, tea kettle of coca love broken
Oh, tea love broken to repair to complete
I now to repair or devote
Two new go through to loving
Me, I vote for beautiful, joyful morningtide
Now vocative another maddening problem
Thou thief go beauty avenging!
