T. S. Eliot Birthday

Eliot, 1919 

❝ Only those who will risk going too far 
can possibly find out how far one can go. 

❝ I should have been a pair of ragged claws 
Scuttling across the floors of silent seas. 

from The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock 

- T. S. Eliot - 

September 26, 1888 - January 4, 1965

When she transformed into a butterfly, 
the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, 
but of her weirdness. 

They wanted her to change back into 
what she always had been. 

But she had wings.

U.S. Responds To Outrage Over Plan To Kill 45,000 Wild Horses
After thousands of people spoke up about a government advisory board's recommendation to kill the 45,000 wild horses and burros currently in federal holding facilities, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) finally responded. 

On Wednesday, the agency said it has no current plans to kill the animals and that it has not yet formally replied to the advisory board's proposal. It will do so at its next meeting, which is set to take place 

in the next few months.
