How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

Joanna Newsom - Cosmia

water were your limbs, and the fire was your hair

and then the moonlight caught your eye
and you rose through the air
well, if you’ve seen true light, then this is my prayer:
will you call me when you get there?

Children of Shatila. A Film by Mai Masri.

More than 350,000 Palestinian refugees live in Lebanon, 15,000 of them in the refugee camp of Shatila in Beirut. Through the eyes of two children who live in this camp, Issa and Farah, this documentary explores the determination to keep family and dreams thriving in a landscape that has been sculpted by war, poverty, grief and displacement.

Released in 1998.

(Also if you can find her documentaries “Women of South Lebanon” and “33 Days” they are great and I recommend them.)

Under international human rights law, secret “law” doesn’t even qualify as “law” at all. The Human Rights Committee confirms that law is only law if people know it exists and can act based on that knowledge. Article 19 of the ICCPR, protecting the freedoms of opinion and expression, requires that “to be characterized as a “law,” [a law] must be formulated with sufficient precision to enable an individual to regulate his or her conduct accordingly and it must be made accessible to the public… . “

[There are two types of people in this world: those who believe that there are two types, and those who don’t. But also shaggies and smoothies. I am the lone shaggie in a neighborhood of righteous smoothies.]

A great heron. A commission I did of a heron that I finished a while back. I was told to ‘make it colourful’.

"Louisiana in September was like an obscene phone call from nature. The air—moist, sultry, secretive, and far from fresh—felt as if it were being exhaled into one’s face. Sometimes it even sounded like heavy breathing. Honeysuckle, swamp flowers, magnolia, and the mystery smell of the river scented the atmosphere, amplifying the intrusion of organic sleaze. It was aphrodisiac and repressive, soft and violent at the same time.” —Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume

You know how much threat ISIS represents to the United States? None. That’s how much. Exactly none. If there was a value less than none, then it would be that, but there’s not, so none is the answer.

You know what does represent a threat to the the United States, a bona fide danger to our continued existence as the land of the semi-free and occasionally bravish? Acting as if every person who says they want to turn the United States into dictatorial hell hole, is capable of making the United States their bitch. ISIS is a ragtag organization on the far side of the world, armed mostly with the discards we either sold to the last set of thugs (note: proper use of the term) who used the gear to cow their relatives, or the stuff we left sitting around because bringing the old stuff back threatened all those contracts for building new stuff. ISIS could no more threaten the United States than Lindsey Graham could punch God in the nose. The existential threat level is green. Or at least, it should be.

As the Deputy Undersecretary of Pogo might say, we have determined the source of the threat, and we’re it.
