blogging lite

Blogging will be light and infrequent until my computer is back from the Apple store.

I did receive my copy of Alain's Steeplechase today. I was disappointed to find it has no biographical info about the author.

And there are some stunningly sexist and racist cartoons within. Granted the time period is the 1950s but this is from the New Yorker, alleged bastion of sophisticated liberalism. It demonstrates how unremarkable those attitudes were. The theme of lazy sleeping Mexicans was a big favorite.

I will post some of them here when I get my computer back.

And I still can't determine if this is the Willie the Whaler artist.

And now - I sure am tired of typing with my thumb on this Blackberry.
