    • The Well Meaning American Oligarchy Are SO Misunderstood
      Just saw a case of the argument that “the people who have been enriching themselves by fucking everyone else for four decades are misunderstood, they’re just following the incentives, and suggesting that the people killing and impoverishing you are bad is polarizing.” Lovely.

Varna in Violet

I went to see Hillary today in downtown Pittsburgh. If you follow my Twitter stream, you can get caught up with what happened. I’ll have more on it tomorrow. Tonight, I’m a little tired from standing for about 4 hours. If you have a chance to see her, you won’t regret it. She’s inspiring.

Tonight, I leave you with something really lovely and the ideal American-Russian collaboration. Joy Womack recently competed in the international ballet competition in Varna, Bulgaria. Varna is a biggy in the Ballet world. To perform well in Varna can have a profound effect on your career. Joy took silver. That’s fantastic considering how many dancers were competing.

Joy dances at the Kremlin Ballet in the heart of Moscow. She speaks fluent Russian and is a Bolshoi trained dancer. Her dance partner, Mikail Martynyuk, who did not compete, and her ballet teacher Zhanna (very long Russian last name I have to look up) went to Varna with her. Zhanna must be very proud of her student. And Misha is Joy’s rock. A talented dancer on his own, Misha is a tightly coiled spring and a sympathetic partner.

Here is their first round dance, the pas de deux from Le Corsaire. Relax and enjoy on a cloud of violet vapor.
