Party like it's 1888

They’re building a new metro line passing through Centraal Station in Amsterdam. What better opportunity than to use the temporary hoardings surrounding the construction site to display the work of young artists. Even cleverer is to provide downloadable copies of the works displayed. The one pictured above is a detail from Stefan Glerum’s history of Vincent Van Gogh’s life.

Obamacare
What I haven’t so far understood about it, and it’s probably because I haven’t really looked into it; relying on less than analytical news items – is why most of the US seems opposed to being given a health care system that actually provides health care instead of leaving them to die when they get ill. It might be my namby-pamby UK NHS conditioning (we still Heart the NHS despite its failings), but I would have thought that anything has to be better than the non-system that exists stateside presently. From what I’ve read, it seems that ‘Obamacare’ has variously been opposed on the basis that it is socialist, unamerican, unaffordable and unmanyotherthings. Why do they not want to be looked after when ill? Can anyone explain please?

Obama 1 year
Great gallery showing Mr O’s first year in office. Interesting to see the process of iconisation as it happens. There are already several classic images in the album that will be endlessly reproduced for many years to come. Check out that signature. Any graphological interpretations of that one?
