I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”


I want her to president of the world.

Happy birthday, Sloopy!
Steubenville native Dorothy Sloop, whose nickname is synonymous with Ohio State football and the state of Ohio itself, would have turned 100 today (she died in 1998 at the age of 85).
Read more about her and Ohio’s official rock song, Hang On Sloopy, at Dispatch.com.

Aww, yeah! (Also: go to Spoonful. Great record store!)
