Daily Bread for 12.1.15 – 2017

Good morning, Whitewater.

Our new month begins with cloudy skies and a high of forty. Sunrise is 7:06 and sunset 4:21, for 9h 15m 29s of daytime.

Whitewater’s Common Council meets tonight at 6:30 PM.

On this day in 1955, Rosa Parks refused to relinquish her place on a public bus to a white passenger:

Sixty years ago Tuesday, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give her seat to a white passenger on a bus in Montgomery, Ala. A police officer made the arrest that set off the modern civil rights movement. Today police recruits in Alabama’s capital city are being schooled in that history in a course designed to eliminate bias in policing.

If you want to be a cop in Montgomery, first you have to take a bus tour of sorts. About two dozen police recruits, in cadet blues, are in the Rosa Parks Museum in downtown Montgomery, standing in front of a replica of a city bus.

In silhouette, through the bus windows, they watch as the driver orders Parks to give her 11th-row seat to a white passenger. She stays put.

On this day in 1884, a fire rearranges classes at UW-Madison:

Here’s Tuesday’s game from Puzzability:

This Week’s Game — November 30-December 4
The Possessive Filmfest
This week features some very personal movies. For each day, we’ll give you a series of clues, each of which leads to a word. You must drop one letter out of each of these answer words and put them together (in order), adding spaces as needed, to get the title of a movie that starts with a possessive first name.
Example:
Container for groceries / improved / out of danger / when dessert is served in a meal
Answer:
Babette’s Feast (bag / better / safe / last)
What to Submit:
Submit the movie’s title and the smaller words (as “Babette’s Feast (bag / better / safe / last)” in the example) for your answer.
