Meanwhile, the British celebrated their National Health Service in the Opening Ceremony history lesson, which was preceded by celebrating labor in the history of modern agriculture and the industrial revolution.

It runs through July 31; see it.

More (imp)Unity/Whose bloody axis of evil? (tags)
Shortly after 9/11, this advertising display went up outside Macy’s at Santa Monica Place mall, and stayed up for several months. I was never sure if they were using patriotism to sell men’s shirts and ties, or men’s shirts and ties to sell patriotism. Beneath the obvious and rather crude commercial message, I discerned a subtext, a kind of subliminal and perhaps subconscious story hidden behind the advertising burka. I’ve tried here to unveil that message.
