Colin Powell, Who Won First Gulf War and Was Humbled by the Second, Dead at 84
Mario Tama/GettyIt was Nov. 8, 1995, and Colin Powell had just concluded a 25-city tour to promote his memoir, My American Journey. Huge crowds greeted him wherever he went, his poll numbers soared, and so did expectations for his candidacy.All of Washington and much of the country tuned in to watch the retired four-star announce if he would be a candidate for president. The son of Jamaican immigrants, he might have become the first Black president in U.S. history. But Powell stepped to the microphone and declined the mantle, saying he did not have the same kind of passion and commitment for political life that he had every day of his 35 years as a soldier. He lacked what analysts call “fire in the belly,” an unquenchable thirst for the presidency and the power it bestows that he would do whatever it takes to achieve the office.Read more at The Daily Beast.

This Classic Fall Jacket Is Rugged on the Outside and Cozy on the Inside
Photo: Scouted/Relwen.Every once in a while, I find an item that looks like there’s no way it could live up to the hype. I was recently perusing Huckberry’s website to see what they’d launched recently, when I stumbled upon the Quilted Tanker by Relwen. Perhaps it was the ruggedly cool lifestyle photos, or maybe the eco-friendly fabric profile, but I was instantly drawn to this tanker-style jacket. Regardless of the reasoning, I knew I had to try it out — then I saw the price. At $298.00 that’s one heck of a trial. Nevertheless, I decided it was worth the price, and if it wasn't worth the money, I’d have 60 days to return it.After all, this is the kind of jacket you buy knowing it will last you longer than anything else in your closet. Plus, it’s also the kind of jacket you can toss on with just about any outfit. This lightweight jacket pairs perfectly with jeans and boots for that camping trip or throw it on with some dressier shoes and wear this jacket to a dinner party. Heck, you can even throw this on for a fishing trip without worrying about water damage thanks to its water-resistant fabric and nylon lining.Read more at The Daily Beast.
