Jack used to live in our area and my husband met and talked to him several times. A true gentleman. RIP.
The power of submission lies not in the ability to kneel before another, to give over one's body or in the wearing of a collar.
The power of submission can be found only in the heart of one who gives her love to another freely knowing what joy and pain will come of it - Roguer

Poet, author and activist Maya Angelou has died at the age of 86.

One of America's leading literary voices of the last 50 years, Angelou is best-known for her 1969 memoir I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. It was the first of seven volumes of autobiography that traced her life from a childhood of abuse and oppression in the Deep South in the 1930s.

The news of her death was confirmed by the mayor's office in her home town of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Mayor Allen Joines said he was "very sad of her passing".

A statement from Wake Forest University, where Angelou had been professor of American studies since 1982, said: "Dr Angelou was a national treasure whose life and teachings inspired millions around the world."
