Mary Abagi is a 63-year-old widow who has spent most of her life eking out a living by growing crops on a tiny plot of land in her Kenyan village. Then, last fall, Abagi learned that the village had been picked for an unusual experiment that promised to change her life. An American charity called GiveDirectly is giving every adult in the village $22 every month for the next 12 years. Abagi's first thought: "I will save the money to buy a goat." And to do that, Abagi has turned to a special…

The Aug. 21 solar eclipse is offering a welcome respite from the dog days of summer and a pretty good reason to take an extended lunch hour for some — or maybe even a whole vacation day.

It was 1934, the Dust Bowl was wreaking havoc in the Plains, Bonnie and Clyde were gunned down by police in Louisiana, and a thuggish politician named Adolf Hitler became president of Germany. Miller taught elementary school kids by day,…
The front page of The Daily Progress , Charlottesville's local paper, on June 28, 1921, offers a mix of local minutiae folded in with larger news. "VALUABLE DOG DEAD," shouts one headline. "WON'T ACCEPT WAGE CUT," says another. And then, right up near the top, bordered with teeny asterisks, is this headline: "KU KLUX KLAN ORGANIZED HERE." What follows is this reverential, two-paragraph recounting of the local Klan's birth: "The spirit of Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest hovered over…
