Opinion: Girls’ deaths moved struggle forward
September 15, 2013 in print edition on A9
This is for four women who are not here. It is for grandchildren who never existed and retirement celebrations that were never held. It is for Sunday dinners that were never prepared in homes that were never purchased. It is for children who were never born and fathers who never got to walk daughters down the aisle. It is for mortarboards that were never flung into the air, for first kisses that were never stolen, for dreams that ended even as they still were being conceived.

Feel the light’: Much anticipated Turrell exhibition opens at Spencer Museum of Art
September 15, 2013
Before Saturday night, light artist James Turrell had seen his work “Gard Blue” — a projection of blue light forming a singular glowing pyramid — just once since he created it in 1968. Back then he was young, pushing boundaries and creating the type of art no one had ever seen before. In the 45 years since, Turrell has garnered worldwide fandom, but perhaps the most striking characteristic of “Gard Blue” is one he’s tried not to stray from: focus. By Sara Shepherd

Lawhorn’s Lawrence: A summer of softball socializing
September 15, 2013

September 15, 2013 in print edition on A9
At 4 a.m. on Jan. 1, 1959, an hour when there never were commercial flights from Havana, David Atlee Phillips was lounging in a lawn chair there, sipping champagne after a New Year’s Eve party, when a commercial aircraft flew low over his house. He surmised that dictator Fulgencio Batista was fleeing because Fidel Castro was arriving. He was right. Soon he, and many others, would be spectacularly wrong about Cuba.
