The Economy Never Marry It On the Statistic Probability of Miracles


L. WARD ABEL
The Economy
  Coming home in the outskirts are vacant lots under a changing. They had a mist hung over each of them. I surmised the fog as spirits buried under demolition liens. They rose in unison as a battleground of lows moved in primary color lines and arrows above. Funny how none of the spirits had blue sky for graves only ones of earth glass, beams and bone.

WARD KELLEY
Never Marry It
Within every great beauty is the seed of madness; the history of beauty tells us so, but one doesn't have to study much to know this, for the most alluring beauty has always deviated from the norm, and this is why great beauty should always be admired from afar, whether art or woman. Never marry it . . . for it will not allow itself to be trapped, and it is impossible to fashion a cage, no matter how clever, without some form of bars. Determined to be free, great beauty will ultimately find its freedom in death -- and whether yours or its, makes little difference -- and often both participants become victims of the fatal seed.

The Economy Never Marry It On the Statistic Probability of Miracles


KAREN ALKALAY-GUT
On the Statistic Probability of Miracles
I You would have said the cards were badly shuffled – After all the actual probability that so many unrelated friends would die this summer is in no proportion to this little epidemic, this cancer – one up north, one next door, one overseas. I try to change the context, grumble that I'm fixated on disease, ignoring the majority who remain. But changing the field means nothing to the heart. II “So what should I pick you up at Lourdes?” Your tired voice on the phone answers my weak flippancy with a real request. “Armanac.” As if lifting your spirits would change the odds. To make sure, I buy the cognac even before I leave. To leave no stone unturned I visit the Cave of Miracles as soon as I arrive. And as my fingers pass over the rocks of Bernadette's cave, sweeping up her tears in a prayer, I try to become one with the country wives before me whose faith may just shift the odds. Once out of the cave My cold objectivity returns: It is known that a crippled man in a broken wheelchair was sprinkled all over with the water of Lourdes and when it was over, his wheelchair was like new III I think of your sweet obsessions, so childish for so big a man, so inappropriate to a scientist, and then consider your proposed article on “The Scientific Probability of Miracles.” It came down to – If I can beat the computer at three-card Vegas solitaire, the chances are I can stay alive
