Weekend Reading 10.24.20

During the pandemic, I’ve been teaching my teenage son to cook, and the lesson this week was the art of making simple red spaghetti sauce. I find that involving him in the cooking accomplishes two things, it gives him confidence to make other recipes for himself and he’s actually enjoying the food more. Win win! This week on the Restless Art site I added two new prints, ‘Red Barn’ from the nearby Sonoma hills and ‘Geranium Show’ from the streets of Lisbon. I’ve been sharing some of my deeper tho...

Graham’s Closing Argument Muffled As Barrett Confirmation Slips Under The Radar

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was supposed to put his uncomfortably close reelection race to rest with his starring role in an October drama: the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.  The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, Graham got a gavel and the limelight as he shepherded conservatives’ dream judge onto the bench despite the heat of Democratic fury.

New ‘The Underground Railroad’ Teaser Introduces Cora Randall and the Real Runaway Slave Train Station

Everyone learns about The Underground Railroad in school as a network of secret routes and safe houses used to help enslaved African-Americans escape out of slavery into the free states of the North and Canada. But what if The Underground Railroad wasn’t merely a metaphor, but rather an actual railroad full of engineers and conductors riding on secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the southern soil, taking slaves on the first journey of their free life? That’s what Moonlight director Ba...

Dianne Feinstein under attack from the left for the crime of collegiality

For the sin of collegiality, once the hallmark of the United States Senate, California Senator Dianne Feinstein is facing calls to step down as ranking minority member of the powerful Judiciary Committee. In Twitter’s garden of outrage, where courtesy and tolerance go to be buried, the calls for Feinstein’s ouster “trended” after she complimented Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, for his handling of the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. “One of...

5 Points On The Short Term PA Voting Rights Win That’s Stoking Long Term Fears About SCOTUS And Elections 

A Supreme Court order that had the effect of making voting easier during the pandemic should be very good news for voter advocates. But the four conservative dissents in the case are ringing loud alarm bells for election law experts.  It’s not just that Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh would have reinstated a tighter deadline for returning absentee ballots in Pennsylvania, had they had a fifth vote to let them do so. It’s that the argument that Pen...

Why Venus flytraps are so popular and misunderstood

Don’t try to feed a piece of your Double-Double to a Venus flytrap. In-N-Out is for people, not carnivorous plants. You can’t them meat the way you feed a dog. But they make good pets, according to lifelong enthusiast Josh Brown. “They’re a pet that produces very little waste or noise. They have little personalities and they’re happy to do their own thing.” Venus flytraps have leaves that sense when an insect lands on them and then close around the bug to digest it. Bugs serve as fertilizer, not...
