From my novel in progress, Heroes of Earth: "As soon as the final bell of the day rang, Arnold shoved his books in his locker, took his empty backpack and ran. So he wasn’t going to do his homework tonight, so what? School wasn’t his job anymore. Being a full-time Resistance fighter was. There’d be plenty of time to catch up, after the Revolution, when the Slugs were all kicked out."

Various news media are now reporting that Israel and Hamas have agreed to an open-ended ceasefire. CNN reports (this matches other news sources) that "Israel agreed to ease the blockade on Gaza, open border crossings for humanitarian and medical aid, and extend the fishing limit off the coast to six miles, according to a senior Egyptian government official." Negotiations are supposed to continue on other Hamas demands: for an airport and seaport in Gaza (the better to import more advanced weaponry for the next war with Israel), payment of salaries of Hamas "civil servants," and release of all Hamas prisoners released by Israel in the Gilad Schalit deal and re-arrested by Israel following the kidnap-murder of the three Israeli teenagers.
