I have a law degree (Stanford, 66') but have never practiced. Instead, from 1967 through 1977, I tried to contribute to the revolution in America. As unsuccessful as everyone else over that decade, in 1978 I went to work for the U.S. Forest Service in San Francisco as a Clerk-Typist, GS-4. I was active in the USFS's union for several years, including a brief stint as editor of The Forest Service Monitor, the nationwide voice of the Forest Service in the National Federation of Federal Employees. Howsoever, I now believe my most important contribution while editor of the F.S.M. was bringing to the attention of F.S. employees the fact that the Black-Footed Ferret was not extinct; one had been found in 1980 on a national forest in the Colorado. In 2001 I retired from the USFS after attaining the age of 60 with 23 years of service. Stanford University was evidently unimpressed with my efforts to make USFS investigative reports of tort claim incidents available to tort claimants (ie, "the public"), alleging the negligence of a F.S. employee acting in the scope of his/her duties caused their damages, under the Freedom of Information Act. Oh well. What'cha gonna do?

Four Artworks by the Amazing Mark Tansey
(1 comments) I first saw Mark Tansey's art five years ago, when Sothebys and Christie's websites carried artworks being auctioned at their attended auctions worldwide, and the artworks did not download in a streaming format from their websites, so you could collect their pictures in your own files and create slide shows and backgrounds with them.

Seven Artworks at Artnet by the Post-Contemporary Kaws

My Mare Island, Vallejo, CA, 94592: Is It a Toxic Waste Hazard?
(8 comments) I worked for the U.S. Forest Service from 1978 to 2001. My duty station for all 23 years was in the Regional Office of the Pacific Southwest Region (Region 5), for 20 years in San Francisco's financial district, and for the last 3 years on Mare Island in Vallejo, CA, where the Regional Office moved in 1998 to reduce rental costs.

From Wylie, an Old Law School Pal Who Played an Acoustic Guitar...
(2 comments) Back in the dark ages when I attended Stanford Law School (from 1963 to 1966), several members of my class played guitars, most of us not professionally, and some of us - like Wylie and me - not very well. But we kept playing (or in my case "trying"). My fave performer after the Beatles and the Stones and Dylan and Baez was Rambling Jack Elliot and the only song I remember finger-picking was his "Railroad Bill.

A Time Trip Back to '55, by David McDermott and Peter McGough
(5 comments) I recently visited "Artists Monographs" at Artnet online and came across an unlikely looking pair, McDermott and McGough by name; then when I visited their biographical page, I was immediately hooked by something McDermott says there: "I've seen the future, and I'm not going."

An Appreciation of Julianne Moore, Ridley Scott, Ray Liotta, Anthony Hopkins, and their movie Hannibal (2001).
(1 comments) The first movie I remember seeing Julianne Moore in she played the character Marlene Craven in The Hand that Rocks the Cradle (1984), and when I raved about her beauty to my sister, she informed me that Ms. Moore had been a face model for a lot longer than she'd been a Hollywood actress.

An Appreciation of T. Jefferson Parker's California Girl, Baja California, and KT.
(2 comments) In 1975, I was living with a lady I'll call KT, from Florida, while we were working in the Student Financial Aid Office at U.C. Berkeley; and, after our collaboration on writing a book of advice for California applicants for student financial aid had failed (due to my hard-headedness), we decided to take a trip from the Bay Area to Baja California in a very used 1967 VW bus I was driving at the time.

An Appreciation of Woman Love in the Movies "Bound" and "High Art"
(4 comments) Woman love, or love between women, is so abhorrent to men with access to Flickr, there are hardly any images of it at Flickr Commons. However, seeing it in movies or in person is a turn-on, and consequently Hollywood has depicted love between women very commendably in two color films I've seen recently: Bound, starring lovers Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon, and High Art, starring lovers Ally Sheedy and Radha Mitchell.

An appreciation of the movie The Killer Inside Me
(2 comments) The DVD of this movie warns that it's rated "R" for "disturbing brutal violence, aberrant sexual content and some graphic nudity." But that's not why I immediately checked it out of the library. Nor was it the sultry noir pictures of the movie's most 2011-stars on the DVD case -- Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba, and Kate Hudson - that knocked my socks off.

An Appreciation of Joaquin Phoenix, Nicole Kidman, and Matt Dillon in the movie To Die For
To Die For was released in 1995, which was during a comeback, or slow period, in the careers of three of its stars: (1) Joaquin Phoenix, who had starred in Ron Howard's Parenthood (in 1989, as Leaf Phoenix), which was his 4th Hollywood movie; and, (2) Nicole Kidman, who hadn't yet gone down with the ship in Stanley Kubrick's last and least notable film, Eyes Wide Shut (1999); and, (3) Matt Dillon, whose career still was blahh.

Dateline July 3, 2011: A Time for The Audacity of Hope and a Time for Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions
(1 comments) About a year ago, the violent attack on the Freedom Flotilla radically changed the international dialogue on Israel and Palestine. Protests in solidarity with the nonviolent activists erupted around the world, from expected global capitals like Tel Aviv and New York City to areas where one would never expect to see a Palestinian flag, like Cincinnati and Des Moines.

More Joan Mitchell -- From a Lifetime of Great Abstract Expressionist Works
(6 comments) Joan Mitchell was born in 1925 and died in 1992. In my opinion her Abstract Expressionist works are the best anyone ever painted, better than Jackson Pollock's, who founded abstract expressionism in New York City in the 1950's; and better than Willem De Kooning's, whose wonderful purely abstract works are considered by many to be better than even Pollock's at his best.

An Appreciation of Rescue Dawn, Starring Christian Bale and Steve Zahn
(3 comments) This 2006 movie about America's extension of the Vietnam War into Laos in 1965 gets a lot of things right. In 1965, America's war against Asians was about leadership and brotherhood under fire, and high-school high-jinks afterwards, and the American military thought the CIA was a bunch of clowns.

An Appreciation of the Films The Wild Child, Starring Francois Truffaut, and Barry Lyndon, Starring Ryan O'Neil
(4 comments) The first of these films -- The Wild Child -- came out in 1970, and the second -- Barry Lyndon -- came out in 1975. The Wild Child starred Francois Truffaut and was in black and white, and the first time I saw it, it recalled for me the compelling black and white films of Ingmar Bergman. Barry Lyndon starred Ryan O'Neal and was in color, and the first time I saw it, I thought its director Stanley Kubrick had lost his min

(5 comments) Alberto Sughi was born in Cesena, Italy, in 1928. A self-taught painter, by the end of his formative years he had become one of the greatest Italian artists of his generation. He started painting in the early 1950s, choosing realism in the debate between abstract and figurative art in the immediate post-war period.

Family Values in 1972, in Concord, California
(3 comments) The Caldecott Tunnel bores through the hills separating Oakland from Concord, Walnut Creek, and Pleasant Hill, three little boom-towns in 1971 on their way to being the San Francisco Bay Area's fastest-sprouting white-flight suburbs. I worked as a computer programmer in Martinez, another town close by but far less booming, and I shared a rented house with a young family in Concord for several months in 1971 and 1972.

(7 comments) It seems like I've always known who Jenny Holzer is, but I'm sure that's not true. No, it's not. And what it must mean is, when I started really looking at art in Berkeley, California, in the middle 1970's, I was drawn to Holzer's works because I liked them and they were so different from other art.

As is known, the United Nations has sent Clinton as a special envoy to Haiti.
