Michael is desperate for a new roommate. His last roommate skipped town without paying rent, and his parents are getting tired of the constant handouts. So he puts out a roommate-wanted ad, and with a week before the new month, he’s willing to take any willing candidate. Terri seems like the perfect applicant. She has a stable job, she loves to cook big meals, and she’s kind of cute, too. Except there’s a catch: she’s actually a cross-dressing boy. And to sweeten her application, she adds that she would be interested being ‘roommates-with-benefits’.
When the delegates left the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in September 1787, the new Constitution they had written was no more than a proposal. Elected conventions in at least nine of the thirteen states would have to ratify it before it could take effect. There was reason to doubt whether that would happen. The document we revere today as the foundation of our country’s laws, the cornerstone of our legal system, was hotly disputed at the time. Some Americans denounced the Constitution for threatening the liberty that Americans had won at great cost in the Revolutionary War. One group of fiercely patriotic opponents even burned the document in a raucous public demonstration on the Fourth of July. In this splendid new history, Pauline Maier tells the dramatic story of the yearlong battle over ratification that brought such famous founders as Washington, Hamilton, Madison, Jay, and Henry together with well-known Americans who sometimes eloquently and always passionately expressed their hopes and fears for their new country. Men argued in taverns and coffeehouses; women joined the debate in their parlors; broadsides and newspaper stories advocated various points of view and excoriated others. In small towns and counties across the country people read the document carefully and knew it well.
Americans seized the opportunity to play a role in shaping the new nation. Then the ratifying conventions chosen by "We the People" scrutinized and debated the Constitution clause by clause. Although many books have been written about the Constitutional Convention, this is the first major history of ratification. It draws on a vast new collection of documents and tells the story with masterful attention to detail in a dynamic narrative. Each state’s experience was different, and Maier gives each its due even as she focuses on the four critical states of Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Virginia, and New York, whose approval of the Constitution was crucial to its success. The New Yorker Gilbert Livingston called his participation in the ratification convention the greatest transaction of his life. The hundreds of delegates to the ratifying conventions took their responsibility seriously, and their careful inspection of the Constitution can tell us much today about a document whose meaning continues to be subject to interpretation. Ratification is the story of the founding drama of our nation, superbly told in a history that transports readers back more than two centuries to reveal the convictions and aspirations on which our country was built.
Tomas Hernandez came to town to attend a New Year's Eve party hosted by a prospective client who wants to win the honor to market Tomas’s new wine, Ravish. He was supposed to meet Alexander Kerrigan, a representative of the Ambers Bottling Company, but the man doesn't come forward and make himself known. Tomas doesn't mind since he had his eye on someone who could possibly warm his bed for the night…a gorgeous blond dancing at the back of a conga line. He probably would have spent a delightful night freeing the little dancer of his inhibitions had two drunken men not gotten into a fight and pulled the dark drapes down from the hotel windows. The rays from the moon filter in and turn Tomas, his brothers, and several other men present into beasts. Tomas figures it probably isn't a good time to introduce himself to the blond. Humans have a way of freaking out in the presence of a big black wolf.
