Picture of the Day
February 7, 2019



         main motivation for visiting the henry ford was to step inside
                   the dymaxion house, 70 years old but still futuristic
. the museum
                   houses an impresive collection of gee whiz neato stuff--a massive
              locomotive, model trains, a wright flyer and other planes, and cars!
                Cars! CARS!--but the most affecting exhibit is
                 devoted to civil rights, including the bus
                   where Rosa Parks made her stand by
                    staying seated and a short film doc
                    about Jackie Robinson. i got all
              choked up because their courage is
       so inspiring but also because we're
    now seeing how fragile those gains are
  and how much work remains to be done.
                  the struggle goes on and on...
