I get it. Thank you, George Meredith. But some things are more valuable and some more transitory than others. Climate activists vandalized Stonehenge in England on Wednesday. Two campaigners from the group Just Stop Oil covered the monolith, which has stood for 5,000 years, in orange powder paint.

The U.S. Department of Education determined this week that the University of Michigan and the City University of New York (CUNY) failed to protect Jewish students from discrimination in the wake of the October 7 attack on Israel. The two cases are the first to conclude since the Israel-Hamas war began, triggering skyrocketing rates of antisemitism on campus. As part of the settlement agreement, both universities agreed to improve training about antisemitism.

I'm not sure what the previous replies have to do with the inquiry, but to be brief and to the point:

The poem is Meredith.

The painting is "The Death of Chatterton."

And the connection is that the model for Chatterton in the painting was the young George Meredith.

Just answer the question, folks...

I agree with George Meredith. "76 Trombones" of Meredith Wilson very nice for summer camp but it's no "West Side Story." Hillary Clinton died before Robert Lowell was first lady. Woodrow Wilson's first name was Thiomas. I didn't realize that Lana Turner's daughter shot her mom's boyfriend. Thanks. I love multiple choice and hate politics.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
