Good morning, Iowa -- Clark and Carole are married!

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Mar 19, 2019

The somewhat secretive nature of the relationship between Carole Lombard and Clark Gable may explain why no photos exist from their wedding ceremony of March 29, 1939. (The photo above was taken the following day, when the couple met reporters.) * First, they exchanged vows in Kingman, Ariz., far fr read more

book: Blueprint for Murder (1948) by Roger Bax

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Mar 18, 2019

A crime novel that really falls into three parts yet by whose end I felt as if everything had been pulled together very satisfactorily. One carp: This is billed as an “Inspector James Mystery” yet there’s actually very little detection involved in the tale. Essentially, James (who read more

Patterns of Evidence: The Moses Controversy (2019, Tim Mahoney)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Mar 18, 2019

When I decided to write about Patterns of Evidence: The Moses Controversy, it was because I wanted to make the wee dick move of putting it in Stop Button’s rarely used “Cult” category.
