KINGSTON, Jamaica - It is midmorning on a Monday in Kingston. There'd been rain earlier, so in a neighborhood called Trench Town, where Kingston's poorest residents live, the unpaved streets resemble butterscotch pudding. Goats rummage through piles of moldering trash. A half-naked woman shuffles by, her head wrapped in a bandana imprinted with a design of $100 bills. Leaning against a half-fallen cinder-block wall, teen-age boys loiter, drinking beer and passing around a marijuana cigar.

Yes, you read that headline correctly. Kofi Kingston, a WWE Superstar who was hard-pressed to find a win on television in 2013, defeated a man in Antonio Cesaro who, weeks earlier, was taking on several challengers, showing impressive feats of strength. Then, Cesaro seemed to fall off the face of the earth around WrestleMania time. He didn't appear at WrestleMania. He didn't appear on Raw the next night. Then, he starts yodeling and loses the U.S. title. Is Antonio Cesaro in the dog house?

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Are there social classes in America? In a new book, "The Classless Society," University of Virginia sociologist Paul Kingston forcefully answers no. Published by Stanford University Press, the book challenges a long-standing intellectual tradition of class analysis and calls for a new, more complex understanding of social divisions. Kingston, an associate professor of sociology, argues that members of presumed classes do not significantly share distinct, life-defining experiences and, therefore, cannot be viewed in any meaningful ways as classes, the way they might inform some other societies.

CARACAS, Venezuela -- Immense and dangerous Hurricane Dean slammed into Jamaica's southern shore yesterday evening, ripping roofs from buildings, flattening trees and flooding coastal areas. Although there were no early reports of deaths, Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller said she was "very concerned" about the storm's impact, especially about the eastern parish of St. Thomas, with which the national disaster preparedness office lost contact. The hurricane, the most powerful Caribbean storm this season, remained on a course that could take it to Mexico's busiest tourist zone, the Yucatan Peninsula, by late today or early tomorrow.

NEW ORLEANS -- Rachel Kingston walked past a pair of growling white Bengal tigers, ducked into a plastic tent and slipped into a dental exam chair. Her hand gingerly cupping her cheek, Kingston described to the dentist how her tooth had been aching since Hurricane Katrina. Steps away, scores of other local residents lined up in front of a dental X-ray machine while a bear cub slept in a nearby tree. Down the road, next to a rhinoceros playfully digging in the dirt, women in a temporary exam room placed their heels into medical stirrups for Pap smears.

Fair trade is tool in fight for justice I buy my fair-trade hazelnut coffee from the American Friends Service Committee. So I read with interest Jay Hancock's column "Fair-trade movement gains speed, criticism" (Oct. 16). And I was surprised to read this: "People on the left complain that fair trade doesn't help enough farmers, provides do-gooder camouflage for evil corporations and, even worse, generates big profits for people other than the Third World growers." Yet Mr. Hancock does not actually quote any one from the left criticizing fair trade.

PROVIDENCIALES, Turks & Caicos Islands - Hurricane Ivan dealt a mercifully glancing blow to Jamaica yesterday but immediately rebounded to a potent Category 5 storm and raged through open waters toward the Cayman Islands and Cuba. The death toll rose to 56. The storm thrashed Jamaica with winds as high as 150 mph, but a last-minute westward "wobble" diverted the eye just before it hit the populous capital, Kingston, sparing the island nation a far worse disaster, public safety officials reported.
