For those of you still left, you might recall the “good ol' days” and can tell our young people what the “good ol' days” were like from actual experience. They weren't the 1910s for most of us but the 1920s.
When I was Adolph's first and only student fifty years ago, I thought it was a shame. He was such a great teacher, and I was the only one who got to study with him. I guess I can now say, "I told me so!" since he ended up teaching at UWM for 33 years and helped untold numbers of students learn to do their art from the inside outward.
In my blog about Adolph in September I wrote: "His students. That's why Adolph loved teaching. The number of talented young people in his classes amazed him." That was well before I organized the Rosenblatt Gallery show of 35 artists who studied with him. And when I look at that show, I understand even more completely what he meant.
“Socialist Obama's GM (Government Motors) success bailout story” is a model that he and the congress can build on when both return next week. $2 billion profit in the third quarter tells us how the "new capitalism" works.
(Second posting of the day; the previous one might be more fun).
We've been told in campaign speeches over and over again that government should not spend on things that are not necessary. Usually this admonishment appears to be for “reduced spending” or “elimination of spending.”
In August of 2009 I noticed an overlooked bag of manure lying in our back yard.
Too bad. My garden was its usual mediocre self; more manure may have made it less so. So, so, sow! I dumped the bagful into the middle of my sunnier plot, planted collard seeds into undiluted manure, and the seeds grew, more quickly and larger than anything I’d ever before planted in almost forty years of gardens.
