    CIVIL RIGHTS ICON BOB MOSES DIES AT 86

    Moses was considered Mississippi's MLK. He was an organizer for SNCC. He helped organize the 1964 voter registration project the Freedom Riders in 1964. In addition, he received a MacArthur genius award and founded the Algebra Project to help poor students with learning math skills.

    Moses was not as well known as John Lewis or Fannie Lou Hamer, but he was an icon in his own right. Rest in power

    Hungry Caterpillar no more

    The art of children's books is truly beguiling, hit and miss. Partly for parents, partly for the kids, but at what age even, fleeting at best. Sometimes the art of simplicity, sometimes of mystery, sometimes a story, a narrative, or just the setting, or a character to believe in. But why a caterpillar?
