While taking yet another masterful jab yesterday at one Michael Moore, James Lileks points out that Someone doesn’t like ugly, using a Moore-cited incident that Moore, predictably, views in the short-run. I'll refrain from spelling out the ugly aspects of Mr. Moore.
Interesting side note: the man who was being attacked was named Ted Landsmark [a black man]. He spent part of his youth in Harlem. He later went on to Yale, to get a BA in Political Science, then got a PhD at Boston U. He is presently the president and CEO of the Boston Architectural Center, and has received fellowships from the National Science Foundation. (The Bush administration requested a three percent increase in their funding in the last budget.) The man in the photo wielding the flag was Joseph Rakes, who when last heard from was a laborer on the Big Dig in Boston [a white man]. Ted Landsmark is writing opinion pieces for the Globe about the nature of the art and landscaping that will go on top of the tunnel.God is, most definitely, a strategic thinker.
