News Blackout

I’m not going to be able to watch the news for a while. I’m even afraid to look at the Times. The only way to do it will be to immediately scroll down past the headlines to the science section, and the arts, books, movies and tv, my people. And read Hobsbawm, following a suggestion of someone whose suggestions and reasoning has always been sound. This was in response to my question about people voting for people who do not act in their best interests.

When I was working the polls on Tuesday I wasn’t hungry when I had to take my assigned “dinner break” so I just walked around, taking pictures. This is the African Burial Ground.
