The moon turns to blood.
Tax day cometh, shrouded in unseasonal snow.
These are the things that myths are made of.
And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder:
One of the four beasts saying: "Come and see." And I saw.

Cortines School's Greg Schiller was removed by L.A. Unified after two students' projects were deemed to resemble weapons.
Schiller was ordered to report daily to a district administrative office pending an investigation after two students turned in science-fair projects that were designed to shoot small projectiles.
One project used compressed air to propel a small object but it was not connected to a source of air pressure, so it could not have been fired.
L.A. Unified School District administrators have told Schiller that he was removed from his classroom for "supervising the building, research and development of imitation weapons," said union representative Roger Scott.
Schiller, 43, also was the teachers union representative on the campus and had been dealing with disagreements with administrators over updating the employment agreement under which the faculty works. His suspension, with pay, removed him from those discussions.

There is an essay portion, but really, the only thing that’s good for is either a groveling apology or extended Maoist ritual self-criticism in the event that we disagree about something (and clearly, you’d be the person in the wrong there.)
Lord, make my hand fast and accurate.Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me.Grant me victory over my foes and those who wish to do harm to me and mine.Let not my last thought be ‘If I only had my gun.’And Lord, if today is truly the day you call me home, let me die in a pile of empty brass.
China is braced for a wave of industrial bankruptcies as its slowing economy forces companies with sky-high debts to the wall, the country's premier has said.
Premier Li Keqiang told lenders to China's private sector factories they should expect debt defaults as the world's second largest economy encounters "serious challenges" in the year ahead.
However, figures this week revealed that Beijing is copying the Japanese tactic of ramping up public infrastructure spending to replace the steep slowdown in private sector investment. Fixed asset investment, a measure of government spending on infrastructure, expanded 17.9% during the first two months of 2014, the National Bureau of Statistics said.
