Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine - Freedom: Not with the PMRC There are so many people that stand for something I value. I choose Tom Morello.

Brief Analysis of The Works of Edgar Allan Poe - Readers get an education when it comes to the role that the first-person narrator takes on some of Edgar Allan Poe’s short stories.
