My older car has The Club. No glossing that over. [It’s not really needed for it’s intended purpose now that so few people know how to drive a manual, but it makes a nice flail!]
[edt] @smulder: One wonders just how much the sitting government no longer desires the responsibility of governing…
It’s pretty interesting how many everyday items can become lethal weapons in times of need for self defense.
Even the occasional high heel…
This report bugged me, for a few reasons. First, it contains this generalization and conclusion that left me wanting a second opinion (or a reference to a letter or something from the artist that backs up that last line):
“Women at this time were not considered capable of artistic production. They weren’t [considered] capable of great works. The fact that Michelangelo the Younger wants her to produce that specific value is really important, because he’s actually saying, ‘Yes, women can produce art. They do have the drive to produce art,’” Falcone said.
“And that’s why she wanted to be connected to the painting.”
Second, there are as many references to the person who commissioned the work as there are to the artist, because of the connection to Michelangelo. Third, the coordinator of this project throws in another barb about the artist’s education in this article, which is a better take on the story, IMO:
On the subject of illiteracy, here’s something that refutes that:
I think the audio of the CBC program is much better than the text, which frequently leaves out details and colour.
It’s not for nothing that stiletto heels are named after a kind of dagger.
(Didnt catch thd self harm atvthecend of that)
Right-wing talking heads promoting turning wage-earning women into Takers?
Sweaty fascist bodies.
Retired? Not arrested immediately?
Garcia was placed on administrative leave before retiring, He was arrested in September 2021.
The details are horrific. Another case of ongoing abuse with the surrounding community ignoring it…
But it was only his wife. He’s allowed to do whatever he wants to his own property.
