sweet shisa
Kyuyo Street. Sweet shisa.

When in pairs, the left shisa traditionally has a closed mouth, the right one an open mouth.
The open mouth wards off evil spirits, and the closed mouth keeps good spirits in.–Wikipedia

Otto and WmX
Walking on the mall yesterday I saw a dog in the distance that looked a little like Daido Moriyama’s famous canine,
a little like Robin’s sweet dog, Irene.
I was reluctant to approach, then recognized the human, John Kirkpatrick. Kirkpatrick is one of my favorite photographers. He took the picture above of me and Otto.

There are those who bemoan the difficulty of the choice, having to choose between snake oil and holy water. It really isn’t a difficult choice.

Terry McAuliffe
Lots of good writing on the race and on the candidates. My favorite article in the past few days is by Noreen Malone titled

Terry McAuliffe’s Shamelessness Makes Him Loveable
His extremist opponent doesn’t hurt, either

One could always cast a write-in for the fabulous Bomb Dog!
