Holidays ahoy!

What a year...death, unemployment, new job, starting from scratch,  and The Danish People's Party is now the second largest political party in Denmark, and the biggest right-wing party!

You can already sense what's coming. Big smiles on some Danes faces, you know who they voted for...a beer reeking bum verbally assaulting veil wearing Muslim women on the train I was riding last week....he's got friends in high places now...the media is back on track, attacking "the spoiled cultural class left-wingers who can't accept the rules of democracy and the people's choice..."  yeah right...while liberalism strangle to death the welfare state it took generations to build.

In need of some time off here.

See you again August 3.

As a person who has been suffering from migraines with aura for more than thirty years (please stop that fundraiser, it only happens to me a few times per year), I'm fascinated by this in-dept study, with graphic representations of what auras look like from the poor, suffering, pain stricken person's point of view.

*****
Panzer: Pzkpfw IV, Ausf B
A casualty of the Battle of France, this Panzer IV was probably photographed some months later, now put to use as a signpost by German occupation troops.
The Panzerwaffe was initially shocked by the resilience of French tanks, better armed and armoured than their own, but emerged victorious in the end because of superior mobility and tactics.

Great article about the cultural and artistic diversity of American Golden Age Comic Books and the political undercurrents of the repressive censorship that was the comics code
