    While trying to figure out a concept in my head for a different design, I somehow had a vision of another, different, type of graphic...I like it. Hopefully I'll get inspired to create more pieces that celebrate our Christian heritage.

    "And you thought it was bad now... Since the onset of the recession in 2007, pundits have compared the crisis to the Great Depression of the 1930s - but this week's release of 1,000 photographs from that bygone era serves as a reminder of how truly harsh that period was. "

    Captain America came out against the Tea Party, Green Lantern just came out. The comic book industry is becoming nothing more than another leftist enterprise, poisoning truth, justice and the American way. I hope DC Comics will take the lead in demanding that the government of Metropolis pass legislation to raise the weight capacity of public changing tables.

    Green Lantern: the homosexualized hero DC Comics falls down before the powerful gay agenda in American cultureBy Julio Severo Green Lantern, hero of comics, has no choice: he will be gay. By the DC Comics bosses’ decision, the hero has to adapt himself to the predominant trends in the American media, whose goal has been to portrait homosexuals in a positive and nice way. Besides, the homosexual way attracts immediate and infallible acclamation from the shamelessly pro-sodomy American media. But the hero doesn’t need to get anguished about his fate. Because he is fiction, he doesn’t have feelings, and...

    Mo‘ynaq – Graveyard of Ships in the Desert Many have visited an abandoned city and wondered what catastrophic event could have caused such an exodus from a metropolis once so evidently thriving. Yet these cities are usually hundreds if not thousands of years old, the everyday clamor and cry of civilization just an echo. Visit Mo'ynaq in Uzbekistan, however, and you can see apocalypse right here, right now. The Soviet era sign still welcomes people to the city. Yet there are few visitors who stay more than a few hours. They all leave after they have done looking at what...

    Global Grind ^ | May 23, 2012 | The Decider
    Shepard Fairey, the man who created the iconic Obama "Hope" poster, couldn't put the paintbrush down when it came to the case of Trayvon Martin. Fairey is known for his amazing artwork and has continuously drawn inspiration from people who've made a significant difference in news and pop culture. Commissioned by Ebony Magazine, Fairey created the piece a few months ago and will be featured in the magazine when it hits newsstands this week. On the Trayvon painting, Fairey said: "I have followed Trayvon’s case closely and I think any compassionate human being can relate to Trayvon as a...
  • Why would anyone object to subsidizing this kind of education?

    05/17/2012 11:03:27 AM PDT · by Mark Landsbaum
    Public education is something best done privately. Then you can pay for what you get and if you don’t get what you pay for, get your money back. But public education doesn’t work that way. You get what you get, and you keep paying and paying. And the process not only turns out what it turns out (sigh), but it engenders attitudes like the Harford Courant recently reported...

  • Earliest wall art is found in France

    Expatica ^ | May 14, 2012
    A massive block of limestone in France contains what scientists believe are the earliest known engravings of wall art dating back some 37,000 years, according to a study published Monday. The 1.5 metric ton ceiling piece was first discovered in 2007 at Abri Castanet, a well known archeological site in southwestern France which holds some of the earliest forms of artwork, beads and pierced shells. According to New York University anthropology professor Randall White, lead author of the paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the art was likely meant to adorn the interior of a shelter...

    American Rattlesnake ^ | May 7, 2012 | Gerard Perry
    One of the hallmarks of demonstrations organized by the left-as anyone who lives in this city can attest-is a consistently muddled message-or assemblage of messages-which often has little bearing on the theme ostensibly animating the protest movement in question. I’m not sure if the occupiers displaying the words of anti-USSR, Marxist Polish philosopher-turned anti-Marxist Solidarity activist-Leszek Kolakowski appreciate their import-considering the number of CCCP t-shirts and Soviet flags I saw displayed throughout May Day, I doubt most of them do. However, the Kolakowski quote did strike an ironic note when juxtaposed against the sea of slogans chanted by protesters this...

    When I was a kid I loved comics. It's what led me down the path to ultimately become a graphic artist. I originally wanted to draw them, but 9-11 turned my attention to the real world, and I never looked back.I still love the art form, and I thought it would be fun to match VIP conservative women with some of the best and toughest super-heroines created. The connection is pretty obvious after all... I'm all for adding to this. I also have a liberal supervillian project in the works (again the connection is obvious). Leave your two cents about...

    One needs to be careful walking on the grounds outside the Hunter Museum in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This sculpture is of a very beautiful dancer cast out of metal....yet she is quite nude and very detailed. The Hunter Museum has a free audio recording which explains the art piece and the artist. I shot this myself earlier today with my new Ipad!
  • Tom Steinstra's Outdoors: Bobcat photos: In your backyard and beyond

    San Francisco Chronicle/ ^ | May 01 at 12:52 pm | Posted By: Tom Stienstra
    The time is now to see bobcats and other wildlife. In some cases, they might be as close as your own backyard. In response to last week’s story about the surge in bobcat sightings this spring, Chronicle readers reported many new encounters, including bobcats with newborn kittens. Four Chronicle readers, Carl Skornik, Jeff Dauber, Bart Selby and Dan Fredrich were able to capture photographs of the animals and contributed them for this gallery. Dauber’s photos came from his brother’s backyard in Cupertino, adjacent to Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve. The photos were taken from inside the house looking out,...

    Years ago I read a novel in which men become extinct and society falls solely to women. One of the few male characters left in the world is a retired US Navy admiral. At the end of the novel, several women stand before a glass case, in which this guy -- now dead -- has been stuffed and mounted as an exotic specimen. The text is something along the lines: '(name), Vice-admiral, US Navy -- old style.' And the legend upon his glass case is, "It Served Us." I have been trying to relocate a copy of this book but...
