John James Audubon, "Carolina Parakeets." I love birds and grew up loving Audubon's paintings of them. These fellas used to be overly abundant in the Southeast, but, of course, like a lot of beautiful things in nature, man killed them off. There are only a handful of stuffed ones to be seen now.

West German border police (at left) stare down East German Vopod after a young woman makes it across the line into West Berlin (ca. 1960)
West Germans stare down the East after a young woman made it across the line from East to West Berlin. This photo will mean absolutely nothing to college students. Communism and socialism are cool, they are taught. When I see college students, often at the instigation of faculty, glorifying Marxism, I just have to shake my head.
