“Kim” reprises the same murder under the same circumstances as “’97 Bonnie and Clyde” in a more graphic and viscerally repulsive way. The Marshall Mathers LP carries the realist aesthetic further by using Eminem’s real name and that of his former wife, Kim, in the LP title and the song title, respectively, and the real name of their daughter, Hailie, in the song text. The words of the sung refrain, “I don’t want to go on living in this world without you,” could be an expression of romantic longing except that they are preceded by the words, “So long, bitch, you did me so wrong.” After several tender moments in which Mathers puts his daughter to bed, the song makes a sonic jump cut to a scene of rage, verbal abuse and murder (Example 3).

Public safety must be our priority, both for those who use scooters and those for whom they have become a nuisance. More stringent rules should’ve been negotiated on the front end before people were injured and killed. Scooters will never be a safe ‘last mile option’ until we have the necessary infrastructure to support them and a commitment to enforcing regulations.
Imagine the 14 billion year lifetime of our universe compressed into a single 365 day calendar year. Then, as Sagan argued with delicious logic, every event in the universe from its Big Bang origin to the formation of the earth’s crust to the emergence of our planet’s first living organisms to, finally, the evolution of humans can be accurately represented on our new cosmic calendar by a specific month, day, date, hour, minute, and even second. The following timeline, drawn from Sagan’s calculations, places the human race in the right cosmic perspective..
