1. Fed Leaves Rates Unchanged; No Hint on Timing of Next Hike -

4. Last Word: Putt and 1969, Fred Smith on Amazon and Ramsey's Departure -

George Howard Putt died in prison sometime last year state prison officials disclosed Wednesday -- far from the brief time he spent in Memphis but never far from the carnage he left behind in the Memphis of 1969.
The bodies of the first two of the five people killed by Putt between Aug. 14 and Sept. 11, 1969 were discovered just days after the murders of actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles by the Manson family dominated national news coverage. Less than a year earlier the Boston Strangler movie was in theaters, creating a sensation about the murders committed by serial killer Albert DeSalvo in Boston just a few years earlier.
Bernalyn and Roy Dumas were strangled by Putt in their home in Cooper-Young and Putt mutilated her body in a way that police homicide detectives still wouldn’t talk about decades later. The bodies were found in separate rooms.
Even with no details other than the names of the victims, the city was quickly spooked by the double murder. So when the body of Leila Jackson was found short of two weeks later, the city’s reaction was a palpable fear in which anyone unknown was to be avoided. Memphians didn’t tarry after work. They went home and bolted the doors.
It got worse as more victims turned up with little in common other than four of the five were women. They were of varying ages. Some were strangled and some were stabbed.
Just about any magazine rack of the day include true crime magazines that by the late 1960s were beginning to look very dated in their lurid noir-like covers teasing the most sensational crime narratives of the day.
They were an intentional contrast to the cover images of youth in bright colors in natural settings in other magazines heralding a new future and youth culture.
The murders in a Southern city, whose 1969 conservatism is hard to describe nearly 50 years later, quickly grabbed the covers of the true crime magazines. And the images they offered spoke to the scenic reality where Putt roamed even as the murders continued.
Apartment buildings and boarding houses were the settings for some of the murders but not all.
Glenda Sue Harden
was last seen walking to her car parked on the Cobblestones from the insurance office she worked at nearby. Her body was found in Martin Luther King/Riverside Park hidden under a piece of plywood.
At one of the murder scenes, police found an ice pick stuck in the side of the building with a stocking tied around it.
Putt’s last victim, in an apartment building on Bellevue, screamed as she was stabbed repeatedly and others in the building gave chase with police close behind, arresting Putt near the new and unopened section of the interstate that runs west of Bellevue.
Putt tried to force his way into another apartment nearby but the women inside kept him on the other side of the door.
The killer that panicked an entire city was a skinny utterly forgettable guy in his 20s with sideburns and glasses who appeared to have rarely roamed beyond a community of neighborhood bars, boarding houses and old apartment buildings in the Midtown and Medical Center areas.
It turns out he came to Memphis after walking away from a prison farm in Mississippi and into a Memphis that was slowly but surely changing. And the world that Putt encountered would soon vanish in large part.
Overton Square’s incarnation was about a year away. A new bridge was about to be built across the Mississippi River as part of Interstate 40 which was to go through Overton Park just south of the north-south leg of the interstate where Putt was captured.
Originally sentenced to death, Putt’s sentence was commuted when the U.S. Supreme Court banned the death penalty in the early 1970s.
He was serving a 497-year sentence when he died at the Turney Center Wednesday in Only, Tennessee.
Putt never sought parole and never gave any explanation for why he killed five people in less than a month and his apparently random selection of victims.

95. Dalai Lama Calls For "Inner Peace" In Accepting NCRM Award -  

The Dalai Lama toured the National Civil Rights Museum Wednesday and stood and prayed on the balcony where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.

But the Tibetan spiritual leader declined to compare himself to King or other advocates of non violence as he talked with reporters later in the museum.

“I investigate myself. My motivations should be honest, truthful,” he said. “If I were to put my name with others who are famous, it is wrong.”

The Dalai Lama was in Memphis to accept the NCRM’s International Freedom Award before a crowd of 500 at The Peabody.

He spoke with an interpreter who didn’t so much translate his words into English as provide the religious leader with the correct word in English for what he wanted to say.

His Memphis stop was part of an international tour with stops in the U.S. as well as a controversial visit to Taiwan at the end of August that angered the Chinese government.

The Buddhist holy figure fled Tibet at a young age 50 years ago following the Chinese’s government’s invasion of Tibet and an uprising crushed by the Chinese army. The Tibet government that was overthrown in the invasion exists as a government in exile in India and a growing community of 150,000 people with democratically elected officials. The Chinese government does not recognize the government in exile and portrayed the Dalai Lama’s visit to Taiwan as an attempt to promote independence of the island nation which the Communist government also considers to be part of China. The Lama said his visit was not political but a visit to pray for victims of a recent typhoon.

In Memphis, he said totalitarian regimes are out of step.

“Totaliarian regimes themselves are always changing. The free world has a moral responsibility to remind them that totalitarian is not a practical way – is outdated,” he said.

The spiritual leader has also criticized the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that began during the administration of President George W. Bush.

“It is no secret, I love President Bush. He is very straight forward. But some of his policies I had great reservations about,” the Dalai Lama said. “I told him friendly the U.S. motivation is good to spread democracy. But its methods are wrong.”

The Dalai Lama said nothing about the fist bump he got Wednesday in Tom Lee Park from Memphis Mayor Pro Tempore Myron Lowery. No one asked during a press conference although the greeting made national news. But he displayed a sense of humor about other things. At one point, he told the crowd at The Peabody that he recently had surgery to remove his gall bladder. “It scientifically proved that I had no healing powers,” he joked.

“We all have the same potential to create inner peace,” he said after accepting the award from philanthropist and award sponsor J.R. “Pitt” Hyde and civil rights veteran Rev. Benjamin Hooks. The award comes with an honorarium from the Hyde Foundation. But he donated the money back to the museum.

He called for “more effort for the promotion of human compassion.” And the Dalai Lama called for women to take a more active role citing the feminist movement.

“Women have more potential to alter the biological pattern,” he said.
