Too many people are incarcerated in local jails because they can't afford to pay a fee or fine.
How did Charles Dickens' beloved Christmas story become a trophy for a Wall Street titan?

Shakespeare isn't the be-all and end-all of course (that's another of his by the way). English has had its fair share of literary giants over the years who, from Chaucer and Milton to Dickens and even Dr. Seuss, have each contributed words to our language.
