The Art of Keeping Guantánamo Open | War Is Boring

Echoing the sentiments expressed by Paul Apodaca, I'd like to approach scalping from an art-historical perspective. One need look only so far as the sculpture and engraving of the so-called "Mississippian" culture. There is a famous shell gorget engraving from Tennessee held in the Heye Collection of the Museum of the American Indian depicting a man clutching a human head by the hair; also from the Heye collection, a massive stone pipe depicting an armor-clad warrior—complete with elaborate head-gear and ear spools—in the very act of scalping, or so it appears, using a talon-shaped cutting device that very much looks like one of the many flints of the famous Duck River, Tennessee, cache. By the way, the flint sculpture from this cache (last I heard at the University of Tennessee) is absolutely astonishing. I know I'm getting off topic, but I think if you ever have the chance, you should see these stone sculptures.

Today, things are not so different, though those who argue that Santa Cruz County should accommodate the growth of the Silicon Valley, and “feed that fever,” are not so much assaulting our farmlands and mountains, but are looking, instead, to transform our historic and much-loved neighborhoods into high-rise, apartment house canyons. We can, of course, feed the fire, and if we do, much of what we treasure most will be consumed. Given that the raging fever of high-tech growth could make us sick, I’m sticking with my mother. Starve a fever! That was her advice. We did it once before, and we can do it again. I think that’s the right remedy for the place I live.

Instruments of Torture: 10 Most Cruel & Unusual Punishments

#26 Report by the County Historic Resources Commission., submitted by Supervisor Zach Friend. Did you know the State Historic Preservation Office staff has termed Santa Cruz County as “the Black Hole of Historic Preservation”? The Historic Resources Commission acts regularly to demolish historic structures, such as the oldest house in the Hihn Subdivision in Aptos Village (8057 Valencia). The Planning Dept. advertised it publicly as a “partial demolition”…not one splinter of virgin redwood remained standing after the Randazzo demolition crew finished loading it all into a dumpster headed for the landfill.

BLACK PANTHER. Like Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman created a lot of good will and empowered women Black Panther does the same for Blacks in America and around the rest of the world. Both are Marvel Comics creations and are full of violence, killings and special effects. I’m finding it more and more difficult to see these action films with messages like revenge, torture, and blood and guts as having any semblance of cinematic art. Black Panther is science fiction, space travel and still the characters use spears to kill each other. There are messages in this movie so I read…but I sensed nothing positive in it. Now I wonder since this has been such a blockbuster if we’ll see Mexican Panther, Chinese Panther, Croatian Panther ?
