From the Past, and Thoughts of the Future

Dear readers, here are a few random images from the past, ending with a book recommendation for the future.

Keith Haring's "Ten Commandments" was exhibited in the U.S. for the first time ever (at the Deitch Gallery in Long Island City, on loan from Nice, in France).

Remember when the world was ruled by folks who looked like those ones (above)? Don't worry, it soon will be again. That's if people like him (below) keep on putzing around (it seems to me) with the delusion that bipartisanship is possible with the radical clerics of the Republican Party of Hatred, Bigotry and No.

Meanwhile, for what it matters (a lot, actually), the New York Times Magazine presents a big article on the Obamas' Marriage.

All of this, and none of it will matter soon enough. For the future, I recommend a read of the book below. An excerpt from the preface follows.
