It was a Monday morning and I just finished looking at the cases I had solved the previous night. As I was looking through the files, a letter fell out from between two of them. It was addressed to me, Albert Waters, but no return address was listed. I asked everyone at the office if they had seen anyone drop this letter off, and they all said, No. So, someone must have just walked in here, threw it on my desk, and walked on. I slowly opened the letter and pulled the paper out. It said, Me

I believe that it is the music of our time that will be remembered long after we are gone, and it is bands like Oasis that led the revolution which took place recently. Oasis, headed by brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher was the first band after The Beatles to lash out against what had become the normal way a band should be, and that is why they will be known for years to come as the band who changed rock music. Noel Gallagher was born on May 29, 1967 in Manchester, he was the second son of Thoma

Alos Known As Nicknames are a substitute of a name given to a person in fun, affection, and belittlement, usually descriptive. They can also be used to shorten a person's name, like Dick, for Richard. Nicknames, whether positive or negative, are only describing a person's general characteristics. Although hurtful nicknames can lower a persons' reputation and self-esteem, joyful nicknames give the person a sense of pride. O.K., first of all people sometimes take a nickname way too far.

Daisy's Love
Daisy's Love
Daisy's Love In F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, the character of Daisy Buchanan has many instances where her life and love of herself, money, and materialism come into play. Daisy is constantly portrayed as someone who is only happy when things are being given to her and circumstances are going as she has planned them. Because of this, Daisy seems to be the character that turns Fitzgerald's story from a tale of wayward love to a saga of unhappy lives. Fitzgerald portrays Daisy as a doo

Hannibal, MO, the boyhood home of Mark Twain, is described its claim to fame as “a sleepy town drowsing.” Most surely he has never been more accurate, for this small enchanted river town has never awakened total equality. It is a town full of ignorance, where nobody has ever thought twice of sharing and spreading their sly comments and idiotic judgements to anyone and everyone who will listen, and most

Picking research projects, sometimes for me, is an agonizing problem that eventually turns into an enlightening experience; what was to be my American Humanities research project was just such an experience. I had preliminarily thought I'd look into cultural myths. While researching myths, I ran across El Dorado Springs, MO., under the category of geographical myths, in the library computer. I thought how interesting while also wondering why. The book listed had been published in 1887, with a q

Family Any child who grew up in a large family can tell you that staying in the bathroom for more than a minute without someone trying to bang it down is luxury. It is understood that time alone or any privacy at all is not even an option. This can be pretty frustrating because, in a big family, everybody needs to know everybody’s business. Having more than one child may, on the surface, seem like a negative way to raise a family. However, growing up with brothers and/or sisters has the potentia

Death of a Salesman written in 1949 by American playwright Arthur Mill
Death of a Salesman, written in 1949 by American playwright Arthur Miller, illustrates the destructive compulsion of a man to attain a success far beyond his reach. This is accomplished through the portrayal of Willy Loman, the play's central character. Willy Loman is a pathetic character because he does not hold any possibility of victory. Unrealistic dreams which are the product of a refusal to honestly acknowledge his abilities deter any triumph that Willy may have the ability to achieve. Thr

This was when my ninth grade AAU basketball season began .We were known as Lakota-3, because there were also a Lakota-1 and a Lakota-2 teams playing AAU ball from Lakota Junior High School. The reason I said this was the beginning of the end is, because we sucked. Or what I really meant is that my teammates sucked. Let me emphasize this point one more time, a good comparison of my team to another team is the “Bad
