Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts (1827).

the last light’s been switched off."

"What he taught was much more than just
how to properly dissect literature, he taught perseverance, leadership and communication skills. It's through Mr. Loselle's intense love
of education and the fine arts that he is
able to leave such a lasting impression
on so many students."
