In Search of Dignity

Here's a link to an op-ed article in the New York Times that I think is fantastic! In Search of Dignity It really speaks to the conservative part of me. If you knew me; came to my house and looked at my books and pictures; you would know I'm somewhat of a sensualist. I have an embarrassing number of books on nude photography; there are reproductions of famous nude paintings on the wall of my den(that I inherited from my folks!). But every time I see a photo of some star's crotch, I'm offended. This guy writes beautifully about the difference and what we are missing. I'm impressed.

He also made me want to read Washington's biography; and I doubt if I've read ten biography's in my life. Hmmm, a good start to the day! Have a good one!

I had read this piece and realised most people don't even know about Washington's list or have any idea of why they were and still are important!
