The Leica Freedom Train "After being hired by the New York Office of Leitz in 1938, on alternate weeks, I witnessed the arrival and processing of thirty or more Leitz-sponsored refugees who were lined up along the wall of our office waiting to be interviewed by Alfred Boch, Executive Vice President of E. Leitz, Inc. Boch put them up at the nearby Great Northern Hotel and spent the succeeding days on the telephone finding jobs for them throughout New York and the nation."
These refugees were Jews, trained in the camera business by Leitz in Germany so that upon immigration, they could find jobs in the U.S.(.pdf).

There's a fly in my pho? I wanted pad thai this evening and right beside Mai Thai (I swear I'm going to make signs for a 2 block pun-free zone in my nabe: C-Food, MEATing) is The Happy Buddha. As I approached the shared stoop, a largish white dude with dreads came outside The Happy Buddha, swore an unintelliglble blue streak for a good 30 seconds, then went back into the place.

I listened for gunshots, heard none and carried on with picking up my order. It's days like these, I truly love this city.

Up here in Canruckistan..... Some of the middle schools have a grade 8 graduation party. My son's school is having a 4 hour cruise on Lake Ontario, complete with four-course meal, dj and dancing. His chosen attire for the evening is complete: white on white pinstripe suit, white shirt, white tie, white belt, white shoes, white doo-rag and white fedora. He says the colour is him.

I look forward to taking as many pics as possible with which to embarrass him in decades to come.

The padaung were even more so. When we arrived, "long necked" women ran about playing football with small and filthy ruffians. They pushed, yelled, shoved and beat the ruffians 3-0."

American Sublime. "Morton Feldman was a big, brusque Jewish guy from Woodside, Queens—the son of a manufacturer of children’s coats. He worked in the family business until he was forty-four years old, and he later became a professor of music at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He died in 1987, at the age of sixty-one. To almost everyone’s surprise but his own, he turned out to be one of the major composers of the twentieth century".
