Nice photos

It occurred to me that I love these for their photo of a photo aspect, which is something I used to love to do. Nevertheless, it is beautiful work.  It is a shame that the exhibit was closed for threats of terrorism.

Wisdom is as Wisdom does

My college friend's father - a now retired executive -- once said, "Never do anything that will land you on the cover of The New York Times."  This actually ended up in their ethics training materials -- at his firm and at his son-in-law's.

An updated version of this would seem to be, "Never do anything that will land you on the headlines of the Drudge Report."
