blood from a stone

FDR expressed four freedoms for the world and dedicated his life to moving closer to that vision.

This moving excerpt is literally set on stone at his Memorial out on Roosevelt Island.

Another president also has a vision 
set on stone on Roosevelt Island.

I guess time will tell.
Have a great weekend!

water you doing with your life?

Charles Adams Platt was born in New York City, 
October 16, 1861.

While our ClockTower was being built in 1885-6
he was studying art in Paris.

Platt returned to NYC, married Eleanor and had one son named Geoffrey.

He is famous for water scene etchings, but also painted in oil and watercolor.

He made a significant mark in architecture.

Platt designed an apartment building on the UpperWestSide, and also the Bryant Park Fountain.

Architects can be artists.

Artists can also be architects.

I'm no architect and it's debatable if I am an artist.

But I was born 90 years to the day after Charles! :-)

cultural enrichment

Trump misspoke again and the left sniggered again and we are left again to discover truth for ourselves.

Here’s a fact:
There is nothing new to reports of 
Islamic migrant criminals in Sweden:

Here’s another fact: 

Two weeks ago Peter Springaire, a Swedish Police Inspector with 47 years on the Örebro force posted about criminal immigrants beginning with 

“I’m so f**king tired.”

He listed one week in crime in little Örebro

with the list of 'suspected perpetrators’:

[his words] “again, again, again…”

Want another fact?

Amir Rostami, Iranian authority on Swedish immigrant crime
 at Stockholm University recently said: 

So welcome to Sweden.
At least know what you are laughing about.

Another fact:

Islamic migrants set fire to cars and rioted in Sweden 
last Monday night.

In Sweden, 
migrants are no f**cking, laughing matter.
