Beards Are Racist, More Naked Nude Dudes, and Willie Nelson

Observations from the far end of the sofa.
According to an article published in 'The Atlantic', if you have a beard, you just might be racist. The article is actually a timely re-post from 2014 titled “The Racially Fraught History of the American Beard.” Apparently not getting shaved and growing a beard is a racist act because newly freed slaves became barbers......or something like that. It becomes painfully obvious that the author had way too much time on his hands. What’s worse is that The Atlantic actually published it. Twice!

And from across the pond we learn Renaissance Art is getting a 'Social Justice Makeover 'so to speak. In anticipation of a showing of Renaissance art at the Royal Academy in London, curators at the museum have made a major decision: The number of paintings depicting nude females will have an equal number of paintings depicting nude males. The #MeToo movement applies to Renaissance paintings also according to the Brits. Apparently, having more male nude pictures corrects the injustice of displays of nude females by those chauvinistic unwoke Renaissance artists. Don’t laugh; an art museum in Baltimore is taking down pictures and replacing them with those of artists with more political correct amounts of pigmentation in their skin. 

Back at home it was announced late this week that famous herb connoisseur and sometime singer Willie Nelson, age 85, will headline a concert for Texas Senate candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke, better known by the first name, “Beto.” Nelson has previously campaigned for Dennis Kucinich and Wendy Davis. This should be reassuring news to Ted Cruz considering both Kucinich and Davis dramatically went down in flames.

It just keeps getting weirder and weirder.........
