Matt: You’re a good writer, so write me the headline, and then write me the final line of the story.

Brian: I would say: A chastened and grateful man, mindful of his blessings, mindful of his mistakes, returns, hoping for forgiveness and acceptance. I guess that’s how I’d put it.

Matt: And the last line of that story?

Brian: Hopefully: Williams was 110 years old, and lived in Sarasota, Florida.

Steve,

I have the same feeling. This famous news anchor of CCTV is another typical two-faced person, who is now behind bars:

http://www.today.com/news/brian-williams-opens-first-interview-suspension-t27276

A lie is a lie. It’s not "an inaccurate statement" or “a sloppy choice of words”. Telling a lie is not equal to “telling a story incorrectly or inaccurately”. If this guy is unable to admit his mistakes frankly, it would be difficult for him “to earn back everyone's trust".

林璎与林徽因 Jun 20, 2015

QHE,

Thanks for sharing the information and the magnificent photo of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall!

我倒是早就听说林璎是华盛顿越战紀念碑的設計者,但今天仔细阅读了关于她的介绍才发现,原来她是林徽因的侄女。请见以下链接中的世系图:
https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/林徽因

无巧不成书,林徽因参与了北京人民英雄纪念碑的设计。


谢谢孙先生!

我第一次知道 Maya Lin 是在 Yale 校园看到她设计的 The Women’s Table. 这件作品的设计理念好像与 Civil Rights Fountain Memorial 很近似.

正象孙先生指出的,林璎和林徽因都是杰出的建筑设计师;此外,令人更为惊叹的是,Maya Lin 也是一位非常深邃有洞察力的作家。


http://www.pbs.org/becomingamerican/ap_pjourneys_transcript5_print.html

BILL MOYERS: My favorite line from your book comes very close to the end where you write, "I do not think you can find a reason for everything you make." Talk to me about that.

MAYA LIN: Everything you make is being made by every single experience you've ever had in your whole life, and on top of that, things you were born with. I think your personality comes out.

There's no way of really saying: "If A, then B, or A plus B equals C in creativity." The true strength of the creative arts is that you allow yourself to think about something. Then how it finds its way in your mind to the surface through your hands to-- whether it's paint or sculpture-- is intuited. I think there's reason to it. But could you extrapolate? Could you actually formulate a mathematical theorem? Absolutely not.

*** ***

BILL MOYERS: You just said you live in a bicultural world but that's a world where boundaries don't exist or they disappear. Why did you call your book "Boundaries"?

MAYA LIN: I think there's running liner text in the front that says, "I feel I exist on the boundaries, somewhere between an architecture east and west." So, everyone thinks boundaries and they think of the container. I'm thinking of the actual line between things. Because it's not about being divisive, it's about being truly ambivalent. You're in between, you're in the place neither here nor there.

*** ***

龙舟节之赛龙夺锦 Jun 21, 2015

这么多的名称,可想端午节是一个多么流行的中国节日。

我想 “龙舟节” 这个名称在海外可能比较流行,因为是从 Dragon Boat Festival 直译过来。对外国人来说,比较简单和容易明白。

其实龙舟比赛自 80 年代开始在海外流行至今,在英国各地都有龙舟会的设立,并举办全国联赛,让划艇健儿有机会定期切磋,交换划艇技术及比赛心得。 http://www.dragonboat.org.uk/find-a-club/

在伦敦就有 Thames Dragons 龙舟会 http://www.thamesdragons.com/

也有世界级大赛,各国龙舟会派出代表参加,有點像足球的世界杯。

昨天端午节,趁机跑到泰晤士河畔参观龙舟练习。

各路健儿一早已经到达,一些艇儿已经下水试著较劲 (见下图)。岸上亲友和小孩子们替他们打气,很是热闹。

由于地点在机场跑道尽头,不停看到飞机起飞。

近距离看到飞机的肚子,與河上体积相对非常细小的龙舟比较,也是一幅奇景。

原来正式龙舟比赛三周后才举行。

dragonboatrace

现场也有其他赛艇练习。这个是双人划艇(奥运标准),正准备下水。

庞大的艇身和强壮的划艇好手,一些小孩子看得目定口呆。

Recent DVD release of action thriller "Run All Night" Jun 22, 2015

... just watched it this afternoon.

The film has lots of violence, yet it's a tribute to a father's love for his son.

Funny crosstalk on The McLaughlin Group 6/19/15 Jun 22, 2015



http://www.mclaughlin.com/video.htm?i=1071

MCLAUGHLIN: … In a papal guidance directive released on Thursday, Pope Francis castigated the international community, for what he described as its failure to confront global warming. Quote, "If present trends continue, this century may well witness extraordinary climate change and an unprecedented destruction of ecosystems, with serious consequences for all of us," unquote.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

MCLAUGHLIN: Question: By embracing climate change, has the pope now made it apostasy for Catholics to be climate change skeptics, or worse, climate change deniers, like Patrick J. Buchanan?

BUCHANAN: Are you talking to me, John?

MCLAUGHLIN: That’s part of the question.

BUCHANAN: Okay. All right. You know, Metternich says, John, that a liberal pope is a contradiction in terms. Metternich was mistaken. The pope when he speaks on faith and morals, speaking ex cathedra, speaks infallibly. But when he speaks on issues like climate change and political issues and the rest of it, he speaks as an Argentine Jesuit socialist, and there’s no infallibility to what he’s saying. And quite frankly, he is squandering his moral authority by going out and by declaiming authoritatively on matters which the Vatican has no greater knowledge of, quite frankly, than the folks in the debate in the United States, who have been in it a great deal longer than the holy father himself.

CLIFT: Translation, the pope is infallible when he is enunciating on issues that Pat agrees with and not --

BUCHANAN: No, I would say faith and morality --

(CROSSTALK)

(LAUGHTER)

CLIFT: Not infallible when he disagrees.

Listen, the encyclical is a teaching tool, and I think he wants to frame what he regards really as environmental destruction for this planet. He wants to frame that moral terms as opposed to partisan political terms.

It’s going to make some -- there are at least five Catholics running for president. And they’ve all been calling for more religion in the public square, except when they don’t agree with it. So, they’re not going to adopt what he said, but this is a welcome addition to the public dialogue on a terrifically important subject.

MCLAUGHLIN: Mort, the church’s -- Catholic Church’s record is far from infallible on this issue or related to it, categorically, in the same category. I’m thinking of Galileo. Do you remember Galileo?

ZUCKERMAN: Yes. He lived right next to me.

(LAUGHTER)

MCLAUGHLIN: Was he complaining about there was no junk removal from --

ZUCKERMAN: I don’t know. We were very careful there. Make sure that we were on good terms.

MCLAUGHLIN: He had a theory of heliocentrism. Do you know what that is?

ZUCKERMAN: Please explain it to me.

MCLAUGHLIN: Please explain it to me.

ROGAN: I have no idea what that means.

CLIFT: They excommunicated him.

BUCHANAN: The Earth goes around the sun. Heliocentric.

MCLAUGHLIN: The Earth --

BUCHANAN: Copernicus was about 100 years ahead of him. And what was done to Galileo has been overrated, John.

MCLAUGHLIN: That the Earth orbited the sun.

BUCHANAN: Yeah, the Earth orbits the sun. That’s a heliocentric universe, rather than a geocentric.

MCLAUGHLIN: Altogether contrary to sacred scripture by the Vatican, 1616.

BUCHANAN: Well, no. They told Galileo simply, you could not preach it. You should not preach it. Copernicus had discovered the idea and preached it long before then.
