    Hey DD, "Art and Politics" is a great topic for a thread. Live and let live, bro.

    "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
    --Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold."
    --Yeats

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

    --John W. Davis, founder of Davis Polk & Wardwell

    Found this article, and obviously quite like much of the imagery. In the interest of full disclosure, the artist of the image I have linked also created the original iconic Obama Hope poster and nearly went to jail for copyright infringement: (link to article about his indiscretion below the image).

    You know the poem “The Touch of the Masters Hand” and how it has to give an explanation at the end of what it means? That is every John McNaughton painting.

    Lynching memorial leaves some quietly seething: 'Let sleeping dogs lie'

    Reminds me a little of the Jewish Museum in Berlin. Interestingly, there are armed military guards at the entrance of the museum, sporting body amor and machine guns:
