How can we teach people to respect animals when they act like wind-up toys?

Hey Folks!

I usually do something I like call Picture Prompt Friday. This is the first time I have been able to do it in a week.

Submissions accepted Monday through Friday.

Here's how it works:

First, find a visual artist here on Google Plus you like (photographer artist, yourself or a friend, I ain't picky.)

Second, get permission to use that picture and post a link to it in the comments section of the Original Post:
https://plus.google.com/115687178185726009185/posts/QGd5UwMckz6

Third, Vote by +1ing any pics you would like me to write fiction to!

I will write fiction to the top five pictures the Saturday.

FAQ
Yes, you can post as many picture as you like.
Yes, you can vote as many times as you like.
No, I don't care if you vote for your own picture (I do encourage voting for others, however.)

That being said: Share this post! I want to get as many people involved as possible!

Now THIS is good TV

"The Hour" is some of the best television I've seen in a very long time. The comparison to "Mad Men" is inevitable, but they are quite different. Where "Mad Men" is stylized and lush, "The Hour" is taut and spare. This suits a show set in a Britain long deprived by post-war rationing, as opposed to the new-found wealth of America in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

The resolution and fidelity of High Definition are used to reveal the color and grain of the film "The Hour" is shot on rather than the pores of the actors and actresses. Despite this, expect no mercy for the characters, whose very real imperfections are under constant scrutiny.

I have said elsewhere that "Mad Men" is a morality tale set in the past in order to permit us to more easily see hypocrisy we might miss in a modern setting. "The Hour" uses a similar lens, but it seems to be aimed at the uneasy relationship between the governed and those who govern. How much do the governed really care to know? If they can't bear to know it all, is the government they are under merely the government they deserve?
