CBS’s new PublicEye blog states that its “most fundamental mission is to bring unprecedented transparency to the editorial operations of CBS News.” No, please, make it stop! Can we all agree that from now on, no more journalistic resources will be devoted to second guessing journalism? I’m really starting to worry that this sort of thing will start spreading to more professions. Like, any minute now, I’m expecting my neighborhood deli to start a public interest blog. (“Yes, the sliced turkey earlier this week was not so fresh.
When people are desperate, have no food or job, they will follow anyone that leads them (rightfully or wrong). The demagogues have to be removed and the people have to be educated. That is the only way change can be brought. “When I see something like this, it thrills me.”Jani, who has practices in both London and Surrey, began collecting spectacles and sunglasses back in the late 1960s when his family still lived in Uganda; his first pair funky, small, green cat eye lenses from the 1950s were a gift from his sister in law. Since then, he has collected hundreds of vintage glasses from the 1930s through to the 1990s some in their original packaging by designers such as Gucci, Missoni, Judith Leiber, Ray Ban, Cazal and Roberto Cavalli. He keeps a small collection in his Mayfair shop (frames from 650), but the majority are under lock and key at home, only brought in for customers who are looking for something ultra special or whom he feels will also be passionate about the craftsmanship.
Mr. Osborne said that Mr. Corder told him that part of the reason for his marital problems was that his wife didn’t understand him because of their age difference. My goal here is not to retell the of jazz in New Orleans per se; scholars have produced studies of varying degrees of detail that attempt to uncover the complex events and interactions that gave rise to jazz as a distinct genre in that place.12 Also largely absent from this discussion will be the role played by musicians in New Orleans, though it is clear that we need to reconsider our conception of that aspect of race as well. In fact, many of those players whom we now consider rather routinely as white identified themselves more often in different ethnic terms, stemming from a diversity of backgrounds including Italian, Irish, Hungarian, Canary Island, Mexican, Filipino, and European Jewish.13 Instead, by focusing on Creole musicians active during the time that jazz became recognized as such, I hope to present a richer, more multifarious narrative of the fascinating era and place when and where jazz emerged most forcefully. Showing the cultural transgressions, tensions, and contradictions as well as new senses of kinship experienced by Creole jazz players, should cause us to rethink some deeply ingrained perceptions of the music.
