ArtPrize Artist Party Tonight At WMCAT. “MetaPhorest” Mural Is Their Entry!

It's fun for me to be around my own kind.  We get each other.  Only within the last 15 years or so did I realize and begin to describe myself as an artist.  I've been one all my life.  I just thought I was different, and well, I am. But, it was much more than that.

About 10-15 years ago a General Manager told me me why he was hiring me.  He said I had one thing that the other 700+ candidates, some in major markets, others with as much or more talent than I had, did not have.  He said I was a "True Artist"; but he stretched out the "i" and made it into a long 'e."  Kind of how the French might say it!   Anyway, he saw that in me way before I did or at least I couldn't identify it.

UNEDITED 9/11 Survivor Interview With Lieutenant General Tom Plewes

Thank you to Lieutenant General Tom Plewes for taking time out of his very busy life to talk with me about 9/11.  Lieutenant Plewes is a 9/11 survivor who was the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.  He talks about the vivid images that will stay with him forever, what 9/11 means to him and some of the other survivors, and what it felt and looked like being in the Pentagon when that third plane hit!  Lieutenant Plewes was very generous with not only his time but with his raw honesty in sharing memories from that day

Facinating Numbers On Marriage And Divorce From The Latest Census

The headline caught my eye but the story is facinating to read.  To see the changing face of American marriage, divorce and baby making is pretty interesting to read.  This is a first-of-its-kind analysis by the Census Bureau.  The study found that people are waiting longer before marrying for the first time.  The percentage of women who wed as teenagers has dropped and lots of guys are postponing marriage past their prime college-age years.
