Thank you Tricia! I will do more, and I have some as yet unposted mural photos that haven't made it onto Google+ yet.

Coming off a downer period, but feeling riotously good. No computer still, so no way to download photos. It's torture! How are you, man?

Where were the black ones? Oh, that's right. They priced and ran out all the black folks in San Francisco. Totally forgot about that. Silly me!!!!

It only gets better for certain folks.

Thank you for posting this to share, +Coyote Prophet
 
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

Ahhhh, the smell of a bit of justice is in the air in this photo, to me anyway.

I've seen this floating around the internet today. It is worth a reshare here.

Edit: This is +Urban Legends - http://www.snopes.com/travel/airline/obnoxious.asp
Kudo's to +Erica Joy for helping locate the origin of this legend. Note that I simply think that this is an interesting story.

This happened on TAM airlines.

A 50-something year old white woman arrived at her seat and saw that the passenger next to her was a black man.

Visibly furious, she called the air hostess.

"What's the problem, ma?" the hostess asked her

"Can't you see?" the lady said - "I was given a seat next to a black man. I can't seat here next to him. You have to change my seat"

"Please, calm down, ma" - said the hostess
"Unfortunately, all the seats are occupied, but I'm still going to check if we have any."

The hostess left and returned some minutes later.

"Madam, as I told you, there isn't any empty seat in this class- economy class.
But I spoke to the captain and he confirmed that there isn't any empty seats in the economy class. We only have seats in the first class."

And before the woman said anything, the hostess continued

"Look, it is unusual for our company to allow a passenger from the economy class change to the first class.
However, given the circumstances, the commandant thinks that it would be a scandal to make a passenger travel sat next to an unpleasant person."

And turning to the black man, the hostess said:

"Which means, Sir, if you would be so nice to pack your handbag, we have reserved you a seat in the first class..."

And all the passengers nearby, who were shocked to see the scene started applauding, some standing on their feet."

This is a powerful, and in my opinion, accurate op ed piece I've seen in many years.
Dan Gillmor originally shared:
 
Jonathan Turley's op-ed in today's Washington Post describes the new normal: The United States, by any measure that matters, has become an authoritarian state on the way toward being an outright police state. Quote:

Since 9/11, we have created the very government the framers feared: a government with sweeping and largely unchecked powers resting on the hope that they will be used wisely.

The indefinite-detention provision in the defense authorization bill seemed to many civil libertarians like a betrayal by Obama. While the president had promised to veto the law over that provision, Levin, a sponsor of the bill, disclosed on the Senate floor that it was in fact the White House that approved the removal of any exception for citizens from indefinite detention.

Dishonesty from politicians is nothing new for Americans. The real question is whether we are lying to ourselves when we call this country the land of the free.

When will people care? At this point, it's looking like almost no one does care. This is how dictatorships are born in the "democratic" era.

Remarkable video! I'm jealous I didn't discover highlining when I was much younger! It's amazing.

Amazing video - These guys are crazy

Tancrède, Julien, Seb and Antoine are pioneers in 'highlining' - a vertiginous combination of climbing, slackline and tightrope walking.
