Photo of the Day: Ortiz and Obama

Two of my favorite guys in the world:

David Ortiz and Barack Obama at the White House

One beats the GOP, the other beats the Yankees. Who could ask for anything more?

It was David Ortiz's selfie from earlier in the day, when POTUS honored the Boston Red Sox, winners of the 2013 World Series, at the White House.

Captain America's Message to Fox News

In anticipation of the new Captain America movie, I recently watched the 1944 serial starring Dick Purcell as Grant Gardner, district attorney, who also happens to be ... Captain America! So where's Steve Rogers? And Bucky? And his mighty shield? And World War II? And the wings on his helmet? Good questions, all. At least there's this WW II-era poster on the wall of one scene:

No room for rumors: Captain America

NO ROOM FOR RUMORS. How has the left not used this slogan, not to mention the poster itself, against Fox News and all of its rumors? Seriously. Someone needs to plaster this thing over Roger Ailes' mouth. We need to say it every time Bill O., or Karl R., or any of the countless rumormongers on that network get going. Let's face it. If the WWII-era slogan would appeal to any demographic, it would appeal to Fox's demographic.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Stephen Dedalus, eat your heart out:

A portrait of the blogger as a young man

We recently digitized some slides, and this was one of them. Age ... 4? Yes, that's a snowman. And, yes, he's dropping a hat. He already has one on his head, see? That's why he's dropping it.

I think I actually remember that logic. I think I made an error and so I made the error into a hat. Which he was dropping. Because he had one on his head.

Such logical stretches are what I have long forged in the smithy of my soul.

NYC

I just got back from six days in New York City and took this shot on the planeride in. It was the day after their big snowstorm and the sky was crystal clear:

I like the long shadows from the tall buildings in midtown.

And this from a schmuck with an 3-year-old iPhone. Imagine if it was someone with a professional eye and professional equipment.

So at least we know Chris Hemsworth's biceps are real. Full video on here.
