The music of the late Adam Jones chronicled on new album

After Adam Jonathan Jones, 45, passed away this year, his friend (and From Big Sur bandmate) Kevin Ream began searching for the songs he left behind.

Yesterday I biked in Michigan Avenue’s new bike lanes, from Harriet Street to Creyts Road in Delta Township. No one yelled at me, spat on me, honked at me or hit me. It was wonderful. 
Opinion

What people talk about when they talk about CRT

The act of naming a thing gives it a firmer reality. The thing becomes knowable in a way that can be easily communicated and repeated. Inevitably, naming also reduces the possibilities of what a thing might be. The word “define” literally means to set limits on something.
