However, when I saw someone post a 15 Artists list, I thought it might be fun to try my own. Other folks stuck to painters only. I included photographers and one cartoonist. I came up with this list off the top of my fifteen minute brain, then searched the happy internet for images. I am a wee bit discouraged that my brain could only come up with two women. Anyway, here are some pretty pictures for you to enjoy.

Overheard this morning at the Blue Tavern...
I have always wondered - when reading the demented dreams of the apocalyptic set - if they have ever considered that if everything we believe in and love is gone gone gone: then there really isn't much to live for?
People who indulge in these kinds of fantasies for real are people without much to live for in the first place. It's classic wish-fulfillment: In this world I'm a loser, but when everything falls apart, I'LL BE KING!
No. You will be the third extra from the left in Reign of Fire who gets eaten by a dragon while waiting for Christian Bale to come save you.

It's not all bad. I mean, the two-party system just isn't working, so if disenchanted young folks rally to help create a better system, then we all win. If instead, they really drop out, we lose.
Was it all smoke & mirrors? Was Obama "hired" by the powers that be to do exactly the job he is doing?
I know that being a parent doesn't grant one moral authority (or even clarity), but I still can't understand how Obama is explaining his actions to his young daughters.
