I’ve mentioned BAGnewsNotes before and below – there is a link in my sidebar. Michael Shaw‘s stream of consciousness on contemporary press and documentary photographs within the context of American politics is lively, fun and thought provoking.

The Obama presidency and health care

Andrew Sullivan

A masterful speech, somehow a blend of governance and also campaigning. But above all, it is a reprise of the core reason for his candidacy and presidency: to get past the abstractions of ideology and the easy scorn of the cable circus and the cynicism that has thereby infected this country’s ability to tackle pressing problems. This was why he was elected, and we should not be swayed by the old Washington and the old ideologies and the old politics. He stands at the center urging a small shift to more government because the times demand it.

Follow the links and discussion if you have the time.

Apropos the history of photography, this image reminds me of one of Mathew Brady’s (American Civil War photographer) – I cannot find it just now.

A Mad Tea-Party

There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it: a Dormouse was sitting between them, fast asleep, and the other two were using it as a cushion, resting their elbows on it, and talking over its head. `Very uncomfortable for the Dormouse,’ thought Alice; `only, as it’s asleep, I suppose it doesn’t mind.’

Update 14:44 13/04/2009: Russell offers a whole feast of oddness.

I have got quite fond of visiting culture11 – from time to time. Not sure if it is coming or going. Seems, though,  it will remain in some form. And while we are there this oddly compelling thought from Ladyblog.
