"It is better to be drunk with loss and to beat the ground, than to let the deeper things gradually escape."

- I. Compton-Burnett, letter to Francis King (1969)

"Cynical realism – it is the intelligent man’s best excuse for doing nothing in an intolerable situation."

- Aldous Huxley, "Time Must Have a Stop"

Politics and Photography

The new issue of Just Above Sunset, the weekly magazine-format parent to this daily web log is now on line. This is Volume 4, Number 2, for the week of Sunday, January 8, 2006

What's there? Do we have a constitutional crisis? When can the president ignore the law? The controversy continues, as things fall apart in the Middle East with a leader removed from the game (God's will?) and there's a mine disaster here where the press makes the worst of mistakes, and then too, this was the week that strange graduate of Beverly Hills High School, Abramoff, pleads guilty to multiple felonies and starts singing, which remake congress as careers are ruined. Here we trace his odd career as a movie producer (yes, he did that). All those new odd recess appointments are considered. Aren't we supposed to get qualified people now? Michael Brown? Too, what's this with calling a major newspaper treasonous? And then, at the end of the week, they start to fall in Washington while Los Angeles gets all drôle. And too, is this the news Middle Ages (or the old)? It's all here.

Ah, Ric Erickson, "Our Man in Paris," provides some respite - Friday night music there, with photo.

Bob Patterson is back. Do we have a coronation? And too, he covers the hottest book of the week.

Photography? A special this week - four pages on the most famous Frank Lloyd Wright house in California, which may or may not survive. And there are two divertissements - what the Texans saw in Hollywood this week after the big football game, and an odd drive down Sunset Boulevard.

The quotes this week? Deception and truth are a problem, and the quotes are full of truthiness.

Note, in Links and Recommendations, the page of political sites, blogs and such, has been completely revised.
