Letters (Not This Time) and Drawings V

I rewatched Barry Levinson's Diner tonight. Really, really good film.

Tomorrow: President Barack Hussein Obama. The small, long picture is my Obama tribute -kinda. Even if he is maybe a little over-hyped (maybe), he still represents the promise of an optimistic future. I want to believe, you know?!

Please, America, please please please!!!

these are just wonderful. you need to get set up at a gallery somewhere, for real.

i'd likely love obama if not for his voting record and stance on abortion. other than that i probably would share your optimism. its not like mccain would do anything about abortion anyways so its a pretty pessimistic outlook on that front regardless.

Jon:

Yeah, abortion. There's no way around Obama's profoundly pro-choice position. However...

One thing both sides have got to admit about Obama vis-a-vis abortion is that he steps outside of the old rhetoric. He's able to get people to realize where they agree and use those agreements as a force for real change. He's a peacemaker in the truest and best sense of the word.
