William Fitzsimmons is an old favorite of mine-- his songs are always gorgeous.

"Moby-Dick is the great American novel. But it is also the great unread American novel. Sprawling, magnificent, deliriously digressive, it stands over and above all other works of fiction, since it is barely a work of fiction itself. Rather, it is an explosive exposition of one man’s investigation into the world of the whale, and the way humans have related to it. Yet it is so much more than that. It is a representation of evil incarnate in an animal – and the utter perfidy of that notion. Of a nature transgressed and transgressive – and of one man’s demonic pursuit, a metaphorical crusade that even now is a shorthand for overweening ambition and delusion."

- The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article TwoI came across this media project over the weekend, and I felt it was important to share. I know this issue can be divisive, but for me this is not a matter of being pro-Israel or anti-Israel, but rather of being pro-human rights. Over a period of decades a group of people has been disenfranchised, stripped of their homes, their security, their freedom, and their voice, largely on the basis of ethnicity, language, and religion. Comparisons to South Africa under the Apartheid system are quite appropriate. As with most contested political issues, this is not simple nor is there a clear-cut solution; I challenge you to look at these infographics and to find out more.
