Rev. Clementa Pinckney

The good Reverend’s funeral was today, and Presedent Obama delivered a stirring and emotional eulogy.

On June 19, eight people people, including Rev. Pinckney were shot and killed by a white supremacist during a bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC. One other parishioner died at the hospital bringing the number of casualties up to nine.

Besides Rev. Pickney, there was librarian Cynthia Hurd,The Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, business graduate Tywanza Sanders, retiree Ethel Lance, Lance’s cousin Susie Jackson, choir member Depayne Middleton Doctor, Myra Thompson, and The Rev. Daniel Simmons.

The Club Dumas

The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte was a good mystery, I highly recommend it. The movie The Ninth Gate was based on parts of it, not the parts involving Dumas or The Three Musketeers. I’m not going to explain it, you can go to Amazon for an overview if you like. Nice translation by Sonia Soto.
