I'm not really a white guy. I'm actually a Pantone 75-6 C guy.
The gradient of human skin tone connects us all, rather than divides.

Being in the opposition can get you shot or imprisoned in Russia. But for Nazis and neo-fascists, they roll out the red carpet.
On March 22, the Russian conservative forum took place at a Holiday Inn in St. Petersburg. This year, the Russian political groups were joined by representatives of the European far-right. Among the participants were former leader of the German National Democratic Party Udo Voigt and members of the Greek neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn, which use a modified swastika as the party symbol. The European guests unanimously denounced the USA and the “Kiev j...

The short version in this: It moves so slowly, you find yourself wishing somebody would die a horrible death to move things along.
It offers the suggestion of a story more than an actual story and takes forever to get going.

We have ferns growing around our cottage and have come to love the fiddleheads! Cannot wait until our next meal with them.

There used to be a cure for that burnt out, overworked feeling called "Americanitis". Now, God knows what we're supposed to do about it.
More than a century ago, the experts thought that Americans worked too hard, putting their collective health at risk

The Onion tells us everything we need to know about Ted Cruz as a presidential candidate.
Texas senator Ted Cruz announced Monday that he will run for president in 2016, becoming the first Republican politician to officially declare his candidacy.

If you're wondering how college athletes have time to keep up with sports and still be good students, the answer is: They don't.
Authors Jay Smith and Mary Willingham explain how the school steered athletes to pass-through courses in order to keep players eligible.

This may or may not be a novel. And that's okay. The narrator, U., is a "corporate anthropologist" working with a major corporation on its largest project ever. U. lives in the same world that millions of connected smartphone and laptop users live in: a world where we all get the same updates about the same news. And it all only matters so much, unless we're actually close enough for the blood to get on us. The mission for U. is to connect his deep knowledge of anthropology with his employer's product.

I've just started this, but I think I'm going to like it a lot. McCarthy says that Kafka is his model. But Kafka never had to grapple with the mega-corporation.

I can't wait to see this. Wim Wenders has filmed a documentary about Sebastiao Salgado, one of the world's greatest photojournalists. Salgado's son joined in on the effort. Salgado has all the design sense of Henri Cartier-Bresson, but has chosen to document the plight of working people around the world.
“The Salt of the Earth,” directed by Wim Wenders and Juliano Salgado, examines the photography of Juliano’s father, Sebastião Salgado, and sometimes strained family dynamics.

It definitely looks like a good film and I'm going to be looking for it, too! However, I was first struck by the title since it's the same name as a great, old labor-movement movie:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9oY4rmDaWw   The old, "Salt of the Earth" is about working people too, told from a woman's perspective about the exploited Mexican-American workers in the mines in New Mexico.

Those iconic safety signs are intentionally light on text. Here is some added text to help you understand.

I thought that might be a shame spiral but I was never certain.

Far and away the best Neapolitan-style pizza in Atlanta. They have lots of competition, but their crust is perfection: enough char to have a crunchy surface but chewy and yeasty inside. They pay extraordinary attention to all of the ingredients and you can taste it. Service is friendly and fast. For some reason, I never see a lot of people there. But the location is kind of tucked out of site. Seek them out. You won't be sorry!

When you're hit by the smell of fryer fat as you pull into the parking lot, you should know what to expect. I ordered a fish sandwich. The piece of fish was about 1-1/2 times bigger than the bread for the sandwich. It was heavily battered and fried and dripping with grease. When I tried to hold the fish between pieces of bread, the batter began to slide off and fall onto the plate. I only managed a few bites before I put the plate to the side and had some of the pizza my brother ordered. This has to be the single worst meal I've been served in a restaurant in years. I know there are some people who fall for the appeal of sheer portion size and extra fat. But if that's not your thing, you might want to look elsewhere.
