Mike Martin: “Now, suppose I’m a teacher in a classroom with a gun provided by President Bonespurs. In the middle of the lesson in walks the student everybody calls ‘Crazy’ because he is.”

Andrew Tobias: I’m With Reagan and Scalia

We have a crying need for: a ban on the sale of assault weapons (as Ronald Reagan and Antonin Scalia both favored, and our local police do) . . . bans on the sale of bump-stocks and “gun kits“ (where you assemble your own untraceable weapon from a few parts) . . . a ban on the sale of  high-capacity magazines . . . heightened requirements for the purchase of “silencers” (Republicans are trying to loosen them) . . . a hike in the age of purchase to 21 (dads could still buy rifles for their 12-year-olds) . . . effective universal background checks that close “the gun-show loophole” and screen out — or at least subject to greater scrutiny — those with mental health or disciplinary histories.

ARTIFICIAL LIFE

***

Artificial life

Ballet dancers and singers

Can also be good

***

NOTE: Many Impressionist artists painted landscapes outdoors, but Edgar Degas preferred to paint indoor scenes of entertainers such as ballet dancers or singers. A landscape artist once asked him whether such subjects were suitable for art, and Mr. Degas replied, “For you, natural life is necessary; for me, artificial life.”

Dante’s INFERNO, Canto 34: STARS

Inferno_Canto_34,_Gustave_Dorè_3

Engraver: Auguste Doré

***

STARS

***

Climb ever upward

Dante looked and saw the stars

Reached Purgatory

***

NOTE: Virgil and Dante climb down Lucifer’s body, holding onto his body hair. At the center of the Earth — Lucifer’s crotch — they turn and start climbing up a path in the Earth that leads to the Mountain of Purgatory. Once there, Dante looks up and sees the stars.

Dante’s INFERNO, Canto 34: THREE WORST HUMAN SINNERS OF ALL TIME

Gustave_Dore_Inferno34

Engraver: Auguste Doré

***

THREE WORST HUMAN SINNERS OF ALL TIME

***

One head, three faces

Brutus, Cassius, and Judas

One chewed in each mouth

***

NOTE: Lucifer has one head but three faces. In his mouths he chewed on the three worst sinners of all time. Brutus and Cassius assassinated Julius Caesar and delayed the establishment of the Roman Empire, thereby opposing God’s will. Judas betrayed Christ.

Dante’s INFERNO, Canto 33: Living Bodies

LIVING BODIES

***

Bodies still alive

Souls dead in the Inferno

Too evil sinners

***

NOTE: Some sinners are so evil that their souls enter the Inferno before their bodies die. While the souls suffer in Hell, demons possess the bodies in the Land of the Living.
