I do not know what it is...
I saw this exhibit last week and liked it very much. There were 3 notable portraits-Queen Elizabeth I when she was probably mid 30s, her father Henry VIII as a young man of maybe 20 or so, and his son, Edward, by Jane Seymour, as a toddler. There are some beautiful landscapes and portraits of some lesser known nobles.
While there I went to the greenhouse to see the amaryllis. So beautiful!
The picture accompanying this article is not from the Berger collection. It is from a local artist who had several pieces similar to this shown. I didn't care for it. Hated the ship hulls decoupaged with the Louis Vuitton logos.
@Bric--There have always been opportunists who have wanted to serve themselves first. Why not pin this blame on those brothers from Texas who tried to corner the silver market? What we didn't have in the 90s when Newt was Speaker was an insane and dangerous President who acted as facilitator for every insane legislative gouge known to man.
@timout--Thanks for the heads up.
@nightcrawler--You are in serious denial.
@oaktree and @datguy--My question was mostly rhetorical. But you've both zeroed in on the question of Internet privacy while Trump sets about to dismantle every piece of citizen protection and quality of life enhancement since the Great Depression. "Let's distract these morons by dropping some bombs" says the man whose penis resembles a Belgian carrot that's been in the fridge too long (FYI-they're tiny, orange, and slimy). Okay, that's pretty nasty and unbefitting for me. We can redline the part about his anatomy and go with "dangerous and insane."
Oh, my God! How did we ever get here?! (Much pacing, wailing, and gnashing of teeth follows). Wait...I know how we got here! Six million Americans cast a vote for a maniacal P. T. Barnum cartoon character for President. Lots of these people are unaware of what they've done. Lots of these people are getting exactly what they wanted. Pesky regulations? Who needs 'em? There's a fortune to be made here!
"The past few months..."?
He stands by his statements that the sexual misconduct allegations are false, but he resigns anyway?
My skepticism just kicked in.
How adorable are these babies?! I wish loving homes for them all.
Wow! What a disgusting guy!
I'm curious about something, though. Didn't Mark Luttrell come to the Mayor's office from Corrections? How likely would it be that the fraternity of upper echelons of management in County Government would not know if one of theirs were this kind of white nationalist? This Barber was promoted to Deputy Director just a couple of years ago. I'm presuming Luttrell did that. Was Luttrell aware? Were others aware? If not, why not? Did they never go to lunch together or out for drinks after work?
This is troublesome to me. I would like for someone to put my mind at ease about this. Maybe Luttrell came to the Mayor's office from some other corrections, not Shelby County. I know he was Sheriff between corrections and Mayor.
@Memphis1235: kinda like you and your likeminded trumpians respected the Office of the President these past 8 years? I'm not the only one here who sees through your righteous indignation.
