The Republicans are developing a smoke screen over the national debt by changing the subject and talking about social programs and the savings that will come from their reduction and elimination.
The halls will be alive with the sound of music and soothsayers and art seekers and food eaters and the footsteps of dancers on bamboo floors. The Artasia building, 181 N Broadway, will host a benefit on Saturday April 16, 7 PM to 2 AM, to aid relief efforts in Japan.
JAM 4 JAPAN features live music by Ashland Slate, Jali Kunda, Loveall, and Nomad Soul, a silent auction, raffles, tarot card readings, and food from local restaurants & cafés. You can listen and dance to the bands in the Cuvée Champagne Lounge, see Asian art, crafts, buddhas, etc, in the Artasia Gallery & Museum, and contemplate PHOTOSCAPES, photography by Mark Baran, Steven Crossot, Art Elkon, Keith Knox, & Suzanne Rosenblatt in the latest guest show at Rosenblatt Gallery. I'll write more about this show in my next blog!

Crumple the calendar, toss it into recycle, it no longer suffices. Earth Day, Poetry Month, Gallery Night. Emails, iPhones. iPads, iPods. Texts, tweets. Forest fires, oil spills, mine collapses. Quakes, tsunamis, tornados. Rallies, revolutions. A moment of silence for the dead, a century of noise for the living. Noise. No-ise. No-ease. Everyone on the move. What's the next event?
For me it's the OPENING RECEPTION for PHOTOSCAPES, (PHOTO-ESCAPES?) featuring Mark Baran, Steven Crossot, Art Elkon, Keith Knox, & me, at ROSENBLATT GALLERY, 181 N. Broadway, Friday, APRIL 15, 6:30-10 PM. I travelled the world with a brownie for years, have since upgraded, and last October found myself snapping up the unexpected beauty of autumn in Harriman State Park (NY).
That's why I'm in a photography show for the first time. What's the next event?
It's not really Jobs.
Shorewood might provide up to $10 million to help finance a $32 million development that includes a Walgreens store, 84 apartments and two separate public parking decks totaling 94 spaces.
That's the word from Mike Harrigan, of Ehlers and Associates Inc., a consulting firm hired by the village to evaluate the financing proposal. Harrigan spoke at a Friday meeting of the Shorewood Community Development Authority.
So we're not broke.
