To BP or Not to BP...

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

(Read by Takeaway managing editor, Rob Hugh-Jones)

To BP, or not to BP — that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the Gulf to suffer
The slick and leaks of outrageous petroleum
Or to throw mud against a flow of crude
And by opposing end it.

Celeste Headlee: On 'Haters'

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Dawdling on the internet this morning, I found this YouTube, embedded below : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrBrQxDDryY&feature=player_embedded 

It's a protest, but also a tribute. And it's notable for a couple reasons: first, this is an international theme. I imagine if they had opened it up to foreign languages, we would hear guys described as "Rien ne l'intéresse" or someone might start a YouTube video by saying, "Amo mi hater." This term is globally ubiquitous; there are very few translations of it because in many countries they understand what a "hater" is without a dictionary.

Singer and Actress Lena Horne, 92, Dies

Monday, May 10, 2010

Lena Horne died Sunday night at the age of 92.

You might say she was born 50 years too soon. She was too black for Hollywood, and too light-skinned for the kids in her Brooklyn neighborhood who teased her for her fair complexion. But she ...

Remembering Baseball's Ernie Harwell

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

"Baseball is a tongue-tied kid from Georgia growing up to be an announcer and praising the Lord for showing him the way to Cooperstown." - Ernie Harwell at his National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony (August 2, 1981)

Before I start writing about Ernie Harwell, I feel the need to again to say that I am not a native of Michigan.  Harwell wasn't either; he was born in Atlanta and worked as a paperboy there, even delivering the daily rag to novelist Margaret Mitchell.  It was his southern roots that give Harwell that distinctive twang in his voice, something he never lost through 55 years of calling baseball games.  But by the time he died this week, he had two hometowns: Atlanta by right of birth and Detroit by bonds of love and true loyalty.

Celeste Headlee Introduces You to Detroit

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

I am not a native Detroiter. In fact, I wasn't thrilled about moving there when I took a job with WDET in 2001. I'd heard all the same things you have, about the crime, the poverty, the burnt out buildings and abandoned homes ... and all of my friends and family were horrified to know that I was taking my 3-year-old cherub to the "Murder Capital."
