HRT #37

This, of course, is a bipartisan statement!

One of Gertrude Stein's most famous quotations, "Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose," 
was part of a the 1913 poem Sacred Emily. I am intrigued by Stein because they say 
her salon at 27 Rue de Fleurus in France was the first "Metropolitan Museum of Art." 
Her walls were hung to the ceiling with the early works of Cézanne, Renoir, Manet, 
Gauguin, Matisse, Picasso, and Toulouse-Latrec. Gertrude and her brother, Leo, had the foresight 
to buy these works before they were well known.

Imagine a party at her house with all those artists gathered together! Ah, to go back in time...

  1. This was when people still talked to one another.
    I don't think you'd catch this crowd text messaging. Are the eyes still the windows of the soul? We just can't bear to look at one another either.
    Now about that spin: "We spin because we care."
    And since we're near the topic, why do I need a commentator to tell me what just happened?
    You mean I'm not allowed to have insight into anything myself? Time for a party!
