Today's Tidbit

THE MEASURE of a culture is determined by how well it treats its artists.

We're a gargantuan failure.

When we start lifting up our artists, we will evolve. Not a minute before.

Speaking of artist, have you heard any follow-up concerning the street artist's that were recorded simultaneously around the world during the Obama campaign, called "Playing for Change"? I will post a U-Tube of the video done last fall as soon as I learn how, the computer is like a language all of its own, yes?

Craig posted that video a couple of weeks ago. There is also a new one. They can be seen on the website playingforchange.org. It's some wonderful stuff!

Thank you lexus,
I watched it this morning and you are right, it is wonderful stuff. The effort they have already made, with the schools and refugee relief, the PFC foundation is doing what more and more businesses, mid size and small, are beginning to participate in; giving back in either tithe or percentage of profit from their companies.
It is a good way to end the sub living standards around the world, including right here in America.

I have been around the world today without leaving the house!
