1956 Mondrian-Style Armstrong Kitchen – Mondrian paintings were an avant-garde statement during the 1930s. For the majority of American homeowners, modern design was a feature of the 1950s. Leary of faddish designs at first, it took a new post-War generation to embrace the new style.
MORGAN AT THE House of Eratosthenes NOTES: Fauci’s contribution was the creation of an environment in which we couldn’t hear from #2 through #5. There’s something about modern liberalism, they’re just suckers for this. They want a single point of control. I think, maybe, they like him because he took sides. He claimed to “represent science” but he never showed the tolerance for a dissenting viewpoint a real science practitioner should show. Conservatives noticed his advice seemed tailor-made to get rid of Trump. After awhile, Fauci came out and admitted it, he wanted Trump gone.
MORGAN AT House of Eratosthenes ALSO NOTES: This is a power our “free press” has always had that people don’t think about much. We allow them to determine, in large part, what we as free citizens discuss. If they decide something like this is not to be discussed, and a bunch of us disagree, they pretty much win. We go off and exercise our right to free speech over on blogs or discussion forums or whatever…the citizenry in large part discusses what’s printed in the mainstream press. For just a few moments. Before turning the page to sports and entertainment.

The good miracles, the acts of the saints and heroes, are always acts of restoration. They give the victim back his personality; and it is a normal and not a super-normal personality. The miracle gives back his legs to the lame man; but it does not turn him into a large centipede. It gives eyes to the blind; but only a regular and respectable number of eyes. The paralytic is told to stretch forth his hands, which is the gesture of liberation from fetters; but not to spread himself as a sort of Briarean octopus radiating in all directions and losing the human form. There runs through the whole tradition the idea that black magic is that which blots out or disguises the true form of a thing; while white magic, in the good sense, restores it to its own form and not another. St. Nicholas brings two children alive out of a pot when they have already been boiled down into soup; which may be said the mark the extreme assertion of form against formlessness. But Medea, being a witch, puts an old man into a pot and promises to bring out a young man; that is, another man. Also, Medea, being a witch, does not keep her word. — G.K. Chesterton, Magic and Fantasy in Fiction
How to Meow in Yiddish: Why Do We Talk To The Animals, *besides just bossing them around* When I go through my day with the small house lions, I tell them what I am up to. I ask them how they are many times a day. When I need Willie to get out my way I tell him to “move it”.

Lizzo Claims She’s Oppressed For Having To Walk All The Way On Stage For This Stupid Award That Isn’t Even Edible | NEWARK, NJ — Critically acclaimed, larger-than-life star Lizzo, recently accepted her music video award at MTV’s VMAs. While doing so, the artist took the time to speak out about the systemic oppression of having to walk all the way down to this stage to accept an award she can’t even eat.
“I will not stand for these fat-shaming, fat-phobic award shows that continue to oppress me by the expectation that I should have to walk all this way just to accept an award,” said Lizzo trying to catch her breath. “And what’s the point of this stupid thing anyway? You can’t even eat it! Believe me. I’ve tried.”
The artist went on to encourage young girls everywhere instead to be healthy at any weight and to “treat yo-self” to that hot fudge cake breakfast you deserve and to reject hateful, fat-phobic words like diabetes, heart disease, and heart failure.
