For example, when Dana travels back to the Antebellum South for the fourth time, she finds Rufus being beaten by a man as a woman watches from a distance, wearing a torn dress. Dana learns that the woman is Alice, and the man beating Rufus is Isaac, Alice’s husband. She convinces them to leave, and when nursing Rufus back to consciousness, learns that Rufus was beaten because he tried to rape Alice after she refused to marry him.
“A Good Man Is Hard To Find”: Characters Qualities and their Changes Flannery O’Connor’s short story A Good Man Is Hard To Find tells about the end of Bailey’s family; it is called by father’s first name as the author did not mention characters’ last name. The man’s mother, hereafter referred to as the Grandmother, did not want to go to Florida and preferred to visit places of her youth. Woman’s contumacy led to the car accident; she took her cat to the trip and the pet disturbed the driver. After that the family met with escaped convicts led by the criminal called Misfit and were killed by them. The Grandmother was the only character that achieved a “public” death: “the Misfit… shot her three times through the chest” (O’Connor); other family members were shot in the forest.

Kindred uses the juxtaposition of two time periods to criticize the 1970s, by comparing the 1970s to slavery. After Kevin talks to his sister about his engagement with Dana, Kevin realizes that his sister 's husband has influenced Kevin’s sister when she says that she “wouldn’t have you in her house - or me if I married you”(110). Kevin talks about the racist influence his sister 's husband has on his sister and that his sister even joked that “her husband would have made a good Nazi”(110). When Kevin and Dana are eating lunch, one of their colleagues yell “Porn”(55). This shows that interracial engagements in the 1970s were thought of as involving no love and only sex.

All in all, the Production Code, also known as the Hays Code played a major role in the development of films. From 1934-1954, the Code restricted many famous shows such as Betty Boop and I Love Lucy.

One of the many things summer brings is games, those of which include football, soccer, volleyball, and most importantly baseball. In my little city we manage to have a professional team for baseball, the Low A Quad City River Bandits stationed out at Modern Woodman park. As I enter my car and travel to work for them that burn of summer I briefly mentioned attacks, sweat beats down my brow and my only savior comes from air flow as I drive to downtown Davenport for the Bandits. Upon pulling into the stadium there are long lines of lumbering fans waiting to get their tickets or to get into the stadium.
