Security ropes…

leave a comment »

…aren’t very secure,  as this artist found out when the  Lego creation  he had spent three days fashioning was accidentally destroyed by a fascinated child who wanted a closer look.   I don’t have an artistic bone in my body,  but if I had spent that long making such an amazing sculpture,  I doubt that I would be as understanding as this artist.

Soccer problem…

leave a comment »

Were you aware that soccer has a diversity problem?   The chairman of US Soccer’s diversity task force (yes, such a thing actually exists) thinks non-white soccer athletes are being left behind in America because their parents don’t have the ability to spend money to help them compete like white kids’ parents do.   But at least Doug Andreassen doesn’t believe or assume that  this inequality  is deliberate or somehow racist.
