‎”Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft are written by men.”
Good Omens “- Gaiman & Pratchett”

I don’t know why but that quote just seemed appropriate today…

Re: “Binders full of women” leaving aside the – oh shall we say awkwardness of the phrase – and the fact his statement is factually not true (Romney did not ask for the binders, they were prepared by a bipartisan group of woman called MassGAP  before the election to give to whoever won the gubernatorial contest… read more about it here) doesn’t that sound an awful lot like Affirmative Action, something the Romney/Ryan ticket is against…just wondering.

Anyway, I went to FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) yesterday to hear a talk given by Martin Parr.  He is an extraordinarily prolific photographer and if you don’t know his work you should check it out. If you don’t like one project you may very well like the second, or third, or fortieth…

Leaving FIT to get to ICP I saw a new hotel on 27th Street. I do not know when it opened but it has gotten excellent reviews…

It was a very pleasant late afternoon walk up 6th Avenue…

Before Going to ICP I ducked into Bryant Park. The carousel is still open but there were no riders – at least not at 5:30.

Great minds do think alike…
