- Themes of Lord of the Flies, The Inheritors, and Pincher Martin          A running theme in William Golding's works is that man is savage at heart, always ultimately reverting back to an evil and primitive nature. The cycle of man's rise to power, or righteousness, and his inevitable fall from grace is an important point that Golding proves again and again in many of his works, often comparing man with characters from the Bible to give a more vivid picture of his descent.

- Baseball, invented in 1845, derived from a game known as ‘Rounders,’ and later became known as “America’s Pastime.” Years down the road, during the 1930’s a sport known as fast pitch softball evolved, providing firefighters an activity to complete while not on the job.
