Once brown creepers were thought to be a subspecies of the Old World Eurasian treecreeper, hence their alternate name “American treecreeper,” but based on their calls and especially their song, they were declared a separate species. I’ve only heard their song twice once here in March and the second time in the Poconos in June but in tone it reminded me of an eastern meadowlark. Described as “peepee willowwee,” “seetidie swee,” or “see, seeedsee sideeu,” by a variety of observers, our eastern subspecies song is more complex, quavering, and ends on a high note whereas the western subspecies is more rhythmic and ends on a low note..

Bring in the firebrand to make this dreary summer box office boom louder than the Fourth of July. A verbose, genuinely unpredictable shindig, “Sorry to Bother You” marks the directorial debut of political activist, hip hop artist and Oakland’s own Boots Riley. Returning to the hometown of his band The Coup, Riley shapes a dystopian reality rooted in recognizable economic strains and familiar locales, choreographing a Marxist soapbox shuffle that never ceases to entertain in its disorderly moves..
I haven been arrested for being late for school or without ID in public housing. And those are just some of the things I haven been arrested for. The reason I haven been arrested is not because I white and haven committed any of these crimes let face it, I jaywalked, littered, and loitered, which makes me a triple threat it because I not poor.
Funny, when Mary left the city to come to the country she cried because she thought her life was over, now returning to the city she cried because she thought her life was over! There were no choices here, she had to leave and leaving the country meant leaving Larry. They were only teenagers and life was not under their control. So, she headed back to the city leaving Larry in the country..
