Let the Games Begin…


If it’s Monday then it must be art class.  I missed the last one due to a cold and so it was with renewed vigor I attacked today’s sitting.  I have to say that now that the paint has set – yes even acrylic improves after a few hours I am quite pleased with the result. (The above photo doesn’t really do it justice – is that a good sign?  I doubt it!)

I was going to write a piece on the Hunger Games that the USA education system seems to have become but what is the point?   Clearly the politicians are happy that a proportion of children who attend school won’t be coming home in the evening.   Actually it is a bit of a cop out just to blame the political class because the same must be said of the whole of the population.   This is harsh I know but what other conclusion can anyone come to when  there has been 20 deaths and 40 injured this year due to the discharge of firearms.  That is seven firearms incidents.   Or to put it another way that is more than one death every 2 days since the start of the current semester.   How this is even close to being acceptable I cannot understand but clearly it is.   Let the games begin.

Perhaps I did write something after all.
