Nike recalled these shoes because someone found the Betsy Ross flag on them offensive.
BOOK OF THE WEEK
This week is about books, rather than a book.
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
I just watched this movie and I believe it started out as a serious documentary. However, somewhere down the line I believe the film makers decided to have some fun with John DeLorean’s adopted-son. Watch the movie through its end and you will see what I am saying.
Framing John DeLorean
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Since there has been so much talk about North Korea, I thought perhaps it was times for this video.
Someone Put Some Bee Gees Over North Korean Marching
ART OF THE WEEK
Bay City Fireworks 2019
For the last three years, we’ve been going up to Bay City, MI; to see their fireworks display. I’ve never been disappointed. Film can’t really do this art form justice.
EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE OF THE WEEK
George Washington (February 22, 1732 – December 14, 1799) was an American political leader, military general, statesman, and Founding Father who also served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797. He led Patriot forces to victory in the nation’s War for Independence. He presided at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 which established the U.S. Constitution and a federal government. Washington has been called the “Father of His Country” for his manifold leadership in the formative days of the new nation.
San Francisco Mural
San Francisco will spend up to $600,000 to paint over historical artwork at a public school depicting the life of George Washington, a mural once seen as educational and innovative but now criticized as racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people. The “Life of Washington” was painted by Victor Arnautoff 83 years ago.
Arnautoff is considered to be one of the foremost muralists in the San Francisco area during the Depression. The San Francisco School Board’s decision to paint over his mural is prompting some to worry that other artwork from the so-called New Deal era could face a similar fate because of changing sensitivities.
Others have applauded the move. (Source: CBS News)
