A Happy Anniversary to Triscribe, as we get all excited about an exciting future. Or, at least, notwithstanding the unfortunate state of the economy, we’re living in some interesting times…
NY Times’ Edward Rothstein on an exhibit on Babar — and the implications of Babar; I think I want to see this exhibit at the Morgan Library now.
I’m not a Yankee fan, but I’ll give them respect; what a sad thing to say goodbye to Yankee Stadium and reflecting on the history and legacy.
At least the Yankees won their last home game. The Mets… oh, those Mets. A sad farewell to Shea Stadium, as the Mets lost to the Marlins in a nail-biter loss. Ending the 2008 season much like the 2007 season is just sad.
Congress – the House, anyway – rejected the so-called bailout plan (or whatever you really want to call it; calling it a “bailout” plan apparently turned a lot of people off). Goodbye, plan; back to the drawing board to find something to save the economy from collapsing.
And, but not least: the passing of Paul Newman – salute to an American icon (even if he never saw himself as one, he touched people with his acting, his philanthropy, and his passions).
