    Thanks guys!

    Arrived safely in Dallas, getting comfy in my room. There's a complimentary beer and wine social at 5:30--hafta check that out! Then there's the retry for a S/L from S&S. Tomorrow I'll tour the Sixth Floor at Dealy Plaza. And sometime, I need to try to put a dent in W&P. Even a vacation seems hectic!

    I hate to be the one to tell you, but the retry for the s/l 11/22/63 has been changed to a random drawing. Check out the new page:

    I had recognized the quote. M*A*S*H is one of my all-time favorite shows.

    Man, freaking photography Nazis everywhere!!!

    The Sixth Floor Museum was a great expereince, but there are security guards everywhere you turn, looking over people's shoulders at cell phones and shit. So I had to get photos outside only.

    You can see the sixth floor window at the far right open where Oswald fired.

    A detail of the 6th floor window. The corner inside is blocked off by walls of glass, preserving it as it was. (something I can't show because of the PNs.)

    And, finally, a view from the alledged second gunman's perspective:

    SF2.jpg

    There was a guy out there who claimed to be the second gunman, but the authorities wouldn't listen to him because it would blow the procesutor's case. I almost asked him why the authorities didn't make him "disappear" like they did the rest of the evidence they destoryed (according to him); but I decided not to humor him...

    Then a short jaunt over to the JFK memorial. Its a cenotaph or an "open tomb." A square roofless room symbolizing JFK's open and free spirit. That's what the brochure says.

    My philosophy of art has always been that it's the ideas behind the object that are being sold, not the work itself. This means you don't have to be right and you don't even have to be good. (some things called art definitely fit into that category!) But if you have to tell people what it means, then you fail on both counts.

    There are light fixtures under the wall of the "open tomb." At night, it makes it look like the lights are supporting the memorial. Kind of like looking towards the future...(that was mine, not from a brochure, so I'm ok with that...)

    Time to rest up for tinight...
