  1. Nov 7, 2017 - "National Gallery of Art Celebrates 25-Year Anniversary of Director Earl A. Powell III; 2019 Retirement Announced" on nga.gov Thank you to Rusty Powell, and congratulations to Kaywin Feldman, who comes in Mar, 2019, from the Minneapolis Institute of Art. "National Gallery of Art Picks Kaywin Feldman as Next Director" on artnews.com
  2. This reminds me of the tragedy of Lyndon Johnson, who without Vietnam would be unquestionably one of our greatest presidents, in the same class with Lincoln and FDR. It just makes me weep when I think of it. Of course I hated him at the time, but that was all about Vietnam, which overshadowed everything. You younger people probably can't even imagine how Vietnam distorted and disfigured everything about our civic life as it crept into the crannies of our souls. You couldn't even fuck without Vietnam obtruding into the crevices of your pleasures. I look back on LBJ's presidency now and can
  3. I wanted to get a quick thread going about the great Orlando Cepeda, mainly because of one interesting fact: On Apr 15, 1958, Cepeda hit the first-ever major league home run on the West Coast. --- In 1993, the "Ted Williams Card Company" put out a set of 160 cards, which I was just given as a gift. My favorite thing about this set is that each card features a player - not necessarily a "great" player, but one who most baseball fans have heard of - and on the back, there are comments by Williams about that player which often feature one very interesting, unusual statistic (refer
  4. It may seem somewhat random that I'm beginning a thread on Ned Beatty, but I just discovered a piece of arcane trivia about this beloved actor from Louisville, KY (yes, pun intended, for which I'll roast in Hell). It *was* completely random that I stumbled across a police-training video on YouTube called "Stay Alert, Stay Alive," which I believe to be filmed in 1965 (based exclusively on the National Archives code), and starting out with a letter by J. Edgar Hoover himself. But I believe the person who put up this marvelous little piece of Americana didn't realize what he had found,
  5. Willie Evans passed away on Jan 4, 2017. Evans was the University of Buffalo's star halfback in 1958, leading them to their first-ever bowl game (the Tangerine Bowl in Orlando, FL) by averaging over 7.5 yards per carry. Both Evans and Defensive End Mike Wilson were denied the right to play in the Tangerine Bowl because they were black, and the entire University of Buffalo team gave the middle finger to the committee, refusing to play in the game in a *unanimous* player vote. "Willie Evans, Who Was Barred from a Bowl Game because of His Color, Dies at 79" by Daniel E. Slotnick on
  6. On Mar 4, 1921, Congress approved the burial of an unidentified American soldier from World War I (U.S. Involvement: 1916-1918). The unknown soldier was brought back from France on 11/11/21, and was buried at the bottom of a three-level marble tomb. Since then, the tomb area has come to represent all American war dead, with the marble plaque reading, "Here Rests In Honored Glory An American Soldier, Known But To God." The tomb guards are members of the Third Infantry Regiment, United States Army. The soldier walking the mat does not wear a rank insignia, so he will not outrank the unknown.
  7. Cal Yastrzemski, affectionately (and practically) known as "Yaz" by his fans, was an incredibly durable 18-time All-Star for the Boston Red Sox. Although he played some of his later career at 1st Base and Designated Hitter, he was primarily known as a Left Fielder. Yaz was the first player with both 3,000 hits and 400 home runs. His longevity made him not only a beloved fixture in Boston, but also earned him second place all-time in MLB Games Played, and third place all-time for MLB At-Bats. He is the all-time Red Sox leader in career RBIs, runs, hits, singles, doubles, total bases, and games
  8. I'm not crazy about a lot of Nancy Wilson's work, but paired here with jazz master George Shearing and his quintet, from the 1961 album The Swingin's Mutual, she's a knockout singing the wonderful "On Green Dolphin Street".
  9. I'd never seen the entire film "Reefer Madness," a propaganda, "˜Tell Your Children'-type film about the evils of Marihuana [sic], originally written as a moralistic, over-the-top piece financed by a church group. Most people here, I suspect, have seen clips of people toking on reefers, and instantly breaking out into maniacal laughter (which eventually leads to madness and its various forms of depravity), but I suspect many have never watched it "as a film," certainly not at the midnight movies. Well, I tried to do it, and while there are *some* bright moments, as a whole, it fails
