Reading about the subprime scandal, I learned that Angelo Mozilo, the CEO of Countrywide Financial, is a dark-skinned Italian who was once refused service at a Southern restaurant because of his pigmentation. When he told them he was Italian, the reply was, “That’s what they all say.”

The confusion remains:

* Mike Tirico

* Vivian Liberto (Johnny Cash’s first wife): Maybe Yes / Maybe No

Many of us have rich fantasy lives, dreams that if only things were different, we could be movie stars or business giants or whatever. One survival trait is to realize when those fantasies are unrealistic, because few things are more embarrassing than getting the opportunity and showing the world that you never could have done what you proudly proclaimed. Case in point: The Republicans kept saying that if only they were in charge, wondrous things would happen. Now they have control of all three branches of the government, but they cannot realize their plans because their plans make no sense.

In a nearly unprecedented violation of standard operating procedure, cops shoot innocent white person.

I doubt if this was a specific result of my previous post, but she was a yoga teacher.

ETA: As Heinlein didn’t quite say, we also shoot dogs.

The cool kids of the art world always laughed at Norman Rockwell because he was so square and representational. He kept painting that way and presumably cried all the way to the bank, but he also did something else. With The Connoisseur he did to abstract expressionism what postmodernists always want to do to their predecessors. (Something I learned only recently: Rockwell always worked from models, so in order to do this painting he first did his own Jack the Dripper “painting” and copied it.)

Sam Spratt has painted nine pictures of African-Americans in the style of the master. This is not an expert opinion, but I think he is a worthy successor.
