"While he was with Miles, Coltrane was tagged with the phrase "sheets of sound." Jazz critic Ira Gitler had first used it.

Consider the most famous pure dystopian tale of modern times, 1984 , by George Orwell (1903-1950), published in 1948 (the same year in which Walden Two was published).

Every achievement is a bird on the wing.Holmes, Jr., Oliver Wendell
