I think this is an appropriate image for this period of reorganizing. It is a walk among the weeds, and I say that for one reason.  The image above is not rearranged by some poor fool insisting on being noticed with a pile of rocks to note a path for a wanderer. Do not worry, I’ve been to this place. It doesn’t take long to discover that fool’s existence. He left a bottle cap, the kind you had to pry off to add a bit of rusty desperation. It dissolves to this day and disappears much like the following list of the last forty-eight months.

Most recent stuff, well sort of, because some of it gets new because I AM REORGANIZING!

Congress Member for Life Why did … Continue reading Club Democrats

Tale of Two CTs

Robert Venturi once observed Las Vegas as the only uniquely American expression of architecture. No one ever says it is a product of thoughtful planning. In 2006, when MGM Mirage and partners decided to build City Center, Las Vegas, NV, the news in New York aptly described it as an entertainment-based retail project. A comparison … Continue reading Tale of Two CTs
