Poet dropped for laureate job says criticism of poem 'silly'

The man whose nomination to become New Hampshire's next poet laureate was withdrawn amid growing criticism of a sexually suggestive poem about former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says he doubts people have even read it. Daniel Thomas Moran said Saturday via email that the 2005 poem is the "imagined musings of an adolescent crush." He says the idea that the poem is "sexually laced or misogynistic is nothing less than silly." The 62-year-old Moran is a retired dentist and former poet laureate of Suffolk County, New York. New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu said he chose Moran as laureate based...

Modi trumpets Kashmir move in ‘Independence Day’ speech – $1.4 trln for infrastructure

MUMBAI, Aug 15, (RTRS): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered an Independence Day speech on Thursday that spotlighted a decision to remove the special rights of the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir among the bold moves of the first 10 weeks of his second term.

But he did not touch on sagging demand that has hit parts of the economy in recent months, especially the auto sector. Modi...

Report: Arizona prison boss slow to react to broken locks

Locks failed for years at an Arizona prison and allowed for serious beatings of prisoners and guards, but Corrections Director Charles Ryan failed to appreciate the seriousness of the problem until he saw video of an assault that was broadcast on television, according to a report released Thursday. Whether Ryan was misled or disregarded information reported to him, he bears responsibility for the problem continuing at the Lewis prison, wrote retired Arizona Supreme Court Justices Rebecca White Berch and Ruth McGregor in a report commissioned by Gov. Doug Ducey. "We conclude that the Director, for too long, remained surprisingly uninformed...

Modi clamps down on Kashmir, and India loves him for it

The achingly beautiful Himalayan valley was flooded with soldiers and roadblocks of razor wire. Phone lines were cut, internet connections switched off, politicians arrested. Public gatherings were banned. The prime minister of the world's largest democracy had clamped down on Kashmir to near-totalitarian levels. And Narendra Modi's country reacted with roaring approval: As he had Kashmir stripped of statehood and its special constitutional status, even some of his political opponents were calling out support. Modi, a Hindu nationalist by the time he was 10 years old, had upended life in India's only Muslim-majority state, flexing those nationalist muscles for his...

US official: 'Much better' conditions at border for migrants

A senior Trump administration official says that with fewer immigrants and more detention space, people apprehended along the U.S.-Mexico border won't be subject to the squalid, overcrowded conditions criticized earlier this year. Kevin McAleenan, the acting Secretary of Homeland Security, thanked Congress Thursday during a tour of a new Border Patrol facility in West Texas, saying the money helped "create a much better situation." The tent facility in Tornillo, Texas, is about 40 miles (64.37 kilometers) southeast of El Paso and can hold 2,500 migrants. It had 32 on Thursday after being open for 48 hours. Another tent camp in...
