Photo Exhibit Shares Snapshots of Cleveland

From Lake Erie to Little Italy -- and from Public Square to the public schools -- daily life in Cleveland is the subject of an exhibit opening Monday at the main library downtown. The library’s outreach director, Aaron Mason, says there’s a gap in the archives that they don’t want to repeat. “Around 1980 or 1990 is when most of our photographs stop. There isn’t much past that point.” So last year, as part of its 150 th anniversary , the library commissioned 25 photographers and gave them a missi...

The Catholic Faith and the Public Square: An Interview with Bob Marshall

On the topic of religious liberty, much has been said recently (and remains steadily discussed) at the highest levels of government regarding Catholics and others with religious convictions who function in the public square, living openly according to the profoundly held tenets of their faith. I recently had the opportunity to interview Bob Marshall, an experienced former member of the Virginia House of Delegates, about this very topic: the Catholic faith and the public square. The transcript of...

How Technology Has Killed The Public Square

It took centuries  for the public sphere to develop—and the technology companies have eviscerated it in a flash. By radically remaking the advertising business and commandeering news distribution, Google and Facebook have damaged the economics of journalism. Amazon has thrashed the bookselling business in the U.S. They have shredded old ideas about intellectual property—which had provided the economic and philosophical basis for authorship. The old, enfeebled institutions of the public sphere h...

The New Hilter Banned by YouTube

http://www.wnd.com/2018/03/youtube-d...-is-offensive/ Just in case you have doubts about the Left's control of the new "Public Square", the internet, here is a great example that we know about. This video is purely a political parody of a public figure, giving a televised public speech in Washington D.C. The purpose of the speech was to effect public policy. Obviously government could not ban or suppress the parody of this speech or quash opposing views, however the corporate owned media m...

Faith in The Public Square?

  For some time now, I have been fascinated with how we respond to the world around us; how something we read or watch can overpower us in an untamable wave of emotions. That one image of a boy’s noiseless cry of utter helplessness, as their ferry is turned away from the port at which they had hoped to get admittance as refugees, can leave a searing mark on one’s soul.  Just as the image of a soldier in battle fatigues kicking a beaten soccer ball toward a sooty child in some desert outpost can...

Cleveland Public Art Exhibit Anticipates Lake Erie Ice Breaking Up

On the Great Lakes, boat and ship traffic is slowing down for the winter. Meanwhile, in Cleveland, residents have a chance to watch Lake Erie change as ice builds up -- and breaks up. It’s part of an unusual public art exhibit called Waiting for a Break , by Ohio artist Julia Christensen. On a large screen downtown, six live video feeds show different spots along Lake Erie.

6 Cities Around the U.S. That Pleasantly Surprised Me

A few years ago I noticed that while I love traveling the world, I have comparatively spent very little time exploring my own country. That’s a shame really, there is so much to see and experience in the U.S. that it would take many lifetimes to do it all. So I made a pledge to try to add in a little more domestic travel to my yearly calendar, and so far the results have been great. Visiting cities and even states that hadn’t especially appealed to me, I have always left with a greater appreciat...
