New kids on the block

By PHILLIPE AND JORGE  |  April 17, 2013

Winters grew up in Springfield, Ohio, not far from the farm country where Phillipe's mother was raised. P. will always remember his stoic grandmother — the furthest thing from a name-dropper — telling the story of encountering him in Springfield and tut-tutting that a young Winters used to hang out on the street corner making cutting remarks to or about anyone who walked by. "He was a smart-mouth," she said.

And so much smarter than the rest, Jonathan.


A FEW MORE WORDS FOR BOSTON

What could P&J possibly add to the millions of words that have already been written about the horror in Boston on Monday afternoon? (We recommend Phoenix alumnus Charles P. Pierce's report, "The Marathon," at grantland.com.)

The person or persons responsible must be identified and brought to justice, of course, but P&J tend to focus on those who acted bravely and heroically in their immediate response at the scene of the incident.

We want to be on the side of hope. Connect with life, love each other, and know that there is hope even in the darkest moments.
