There are a lot of small western towns in the American west, where [being a smokejumper] is a really important summer job. That can be college tuition right there. And it forms a sense of teamhood and camaraderie and self-esteem, so it raised a very big set of questions that are uncomfortable. But it also raised questions that Im not sure were thinking enough about: where we live and how we live, and about our responsibility to others. [For background] you can read Fire on the Mountain by John Maclean, son of the famous Western writer Norman Maclean. Patty Limerick, the Faculty Director and Chair of the Board of the Center of the American West at the University of Colorado, where she is also a professor of history. Shiloh in western Tennessee is a beautifully preserved battlefield in a rural area that may not get as much visitation as its importance deserves.

‘The guy it’s about sent me a long letter asking if we could meet up again. But I thought: “It’s too late. You dumped me!”’ Bands in Limerick just did cover versions, so when I met this group called The Cranberry Saw Us, I was immediately impressed: they wanted to write their own songs. They couldnt really play, which was part of their charm. Noel Hogan, their guitarist, used to make up his own chords, sometimes with just one finger. Linger was the first song we wrote. Initially, it was just a chord shape, with no real melody or lyrics. I took a tape of it home and came up with a verse and chorus. I wrote about being rejected. I never imagined that that it would become a big song. Continue reading...

*** Continues from USA Politics Today... Bill Clinton Calls Reporter So He CanDie With A Clean ConscienceBy Conservative Army The City of Little Rock is filling up with members of the Clinton family as they reportedly prepare for the final departure of Wiliam Jefferson Clinton from this earth. What they didnt know is that while they prepare to say goodbye, President Clinton has been making his own arrangements. A reporter for a small paper in Limerick, the first to ever interview Clinton when he was running for governor, has been called to the Clinton Presidential Library to interview the ailing former commander-in-chief. The interview, which will be an exclusive, is being held so Clinton can “die with a clean conscience.” Whether that means he’s going to confess to all of his affairs, to his dirty dealings over Whitewater or to the numerous coverups he and his wife have been involved in over the years remains to be seen.

Pelicans haven't evolved much in 30 million years. That's because they've pretty much nailed how to be a pelican. From KQED : A number of anatomical adaptions enable the bird to take these dives in stride. The shape of its bill is essential, reducinghydrodynamic drag” — buckling forces, caused by the change from air to water — to almost zero. It’s something like the difference between slapping the water with your palm and chopping it, karate-style. And while all birds have light, air-filled bones, pelican skeletons take it to an extreme. As they dive, they inflate special extra air sacs around their neck and belly, cushioning their impact and allowing them to float. Even their celebrated pouches play a role. A famous limerick quips, “A remarkable bird is a pelican / Its beak can hold more than its belly can…” That beak is more than just a fishing net.

I must take great exception to the letter from Chris Hughes (8 April). The notion that only Catholics can be considered Irish is something that has plagued the island of Ireland for generations and continues to this day in the north of the island. The very first president of the Irish Republic, Douglas Hyde, was a Protestant as were a number of leading nationalists, Wolfe Tone, Charles Parnell and Robert Childers to name but three. Are these not to be considered Irish? My own ancestry can be traced directly back to the early 18th century in Limerick. My great, great grandfather was a clerk in Dingle, Co Kerry and my grandfather a draper’s assistant in Dublin. Church of Ireland (Protestant) one and all. I am now a very happy atheist born in Dublin, living in England, and proudly Irish. Ed Ievers New Malden, SurreyJoin the debateemail guardian.letters@theguardian.com Continue reading...
