Robert Moses, a civil rights pioneer, will never forget that Mississippi August morning in 1961. He and two others showed up at the McComb County courthouse to register voters. Three white men stood in their way. Then, as Moses told an audience last week at Occidental College, in a flash he was knocked to the ground by blows to the forehead and temple. He was struck repeatedly. His face was driven into the pavement. Blood flowed.

Robert Moses creates jewel-like dances built on classical form and enhanced by swivels, quirks and reverent pauses. Whether he's using richly romantic taped music or rap (his selection of which is equally romantic), his carefully crafted lyricism contains moments of calm for reflecting, questioning or gathering strength.

The most surprising thing about "Her," the new Spike Jonze movie, is not that it dares to suggest an otherwise sane person might fall in love with the operating system that runs his computer and his smartphone. Or that middle-aged men look good in high-waisted pants. Or that it will be possible someday soon to ride a subway from downtown Los Angeles to the beach. It is something simpler: that the near future is more interesting, culturally and architecturally, than the recent past.

More hospital waste, including intravenous tubing and vials of blood, washed ashore today on a Long Island beach at Robert Moses State Park, and officials declared it off limits for swimmers just a few hours after it had been reopened. Swimming bans were lifted today on other beaches along a 25-mile stretch of the island's south shore, but officials warned that winds and tides could bring more debris and force more closings. There was no word on where the material came from.

A mass of black sludge 20 miles long, believed to be algae, washed up on Long Island beaches Monday and left the shoreline littered with dead shellfish. The odorless scum, which the Coast Guard at first thought might be oil, was spotted early Monday in the Atlantic Ocean off Robert Moses State Park on Fire Island, 20 miles east of New York City. Hours later, the slick had reached 20 miles east to Smith Point, authorities said.
