"The American jets were called Phantoms, because they appeared out of nowhere, and by the time you saw the plane, the rockets were already heading toward you. My friend and I were doing maintenance on the machinery when our factory was bombed. We heard the plane coming and tried to run toward the coal vault, but before we got there a missile tore him in half."
The ballerina Misty Copeland has had a meteoric rise under unique circumstances. Rivka Galchenwrites:

Cory Booker and Rand Paul have joined forces, which sounds like a bad cop show – “Booker and Rand.” But it’s for a good cause. They’re pushing a bill that would expunge the criminal record of people sent to jail for non-violent drug offenses. So that way, when they get out, they can get a job and become a contributing member of society. Which is more than I can say for Ted Cruz.
