This is one of my favorite blogs. For some reason, I’m not able to reblog (I was before). The “R” button isn’t functional. I find his photography so amazing, so real, so human … I always like to share.
I was watching Nicole Wallace‘s show on MSNBC this afternoon. One of the segments presents a Twitter thread written by Benjamin Wittes where he lists, one by one, the government officials who have been targeted by “IT” in view of the many illegal, immoral and dishonest actions taken since investigations into his actions. Mr. Wittes compares his complied list to this poem written by Pastor Martin Niemoller.
Check for the parallels and the associations. Maybe you may add other examples.
“First they came …” is the poetic form of a prose post-war confession first made in German in 1946 by the German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984). It is about the cowardice of German intellectuals and certain clergy (including, by his own admission, Niemöller himself) following the Nazis‘ rise to power and subsequent incremental purging of their chosen targets, group after group.
Climbing is a massive passion of mine and during the summer I met up with my friends at So iLL to make this piece on our trip in Tokyo.

Even for the smartest and most talented actors, there are far more ways for a movie to fall short than succeed, so it’s a rare moment when project after project clicks seamlessly into place. Right now, Scarlett Johansson is clearly having such a moment. Earlier in the year, she played a pivotal role in what has become the highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide, Avengers: Endgame, and filming has just wrapped for the standalone movie about her character, Black Widow, scheduled for release in May. Meanwhile, her performances in two recent, smaller-scale movies, the searing relationship drama Marriage Story and the extraordinary, off-kilter Nazi-era comedy Jojo Rabbit, are drawing sustained acclaim; for the former she is widely considered a contender for best actress.
All of which seems to leave Johansson quietly proud, but also uneasy.
“I worked really hard for a really long time…So maybe this is the result of that.”…
