Here is a fine example of the working class in my neighborhood. Note the American flags in the helmet of the black steel worker, most of his coworkers also had these flags. Also on the bridge they are building is the sign put up protesting NY gun laws. These draconian laws were passed to stop the shootings in the cities but the shooters in the cities use illegal hand guns. There is high feelings against the gun laws while at the same time, DiBlasio decided it was racist to search for guns hidden on black thugs so no one is stopped for gun searches anymore with the obvious painful results.
An amazing act of vandalism is happening this week in Japan: 400-year-old garden in Okayama to be replaced with condominium complex ‹ Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion
Japan loves to devise top three lists, and Okayama City’s Korakuen is held to be one of the country’s three best gardens. Anyone who’s visited will tell you that it’s indeed beautiful, but Korakuen isn’t the city’s only garden, or even its oldest…The garden’s layout is thought to be the work of noted landscaper Kobori Enshu, who designed Tokoen in the kaiyu style, in which visitors are led on a course that winds around the grounds and past a spring-fed pond and tea house. As with many Japanese gardens, it was created with sight lines that ”borrow” aspects from the surrounding scenery, which in Tokoen’s case means affording visitors views of nearby Mt. Misaoyama.
