The more things change.... @ 12:52 pm


"The people of England have been led in Mesopotamia into a trap from which it will be hard to escape with dignity and honour. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. The Baghdad communiques are belated, insincere, incomplete. Things have been far worse than we have been told, our administration more bloody and inefficient than the public knows. It is a disgrace to our imperial record, and may soon be too inflamed for any ordinary cure. We are to-day not far from a disaster."

T.E. Lawrence, 1920

Speaking of....

The American Cinematheque is showing Lawrence of Arabia in 70mm at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on Friday the 26th, Saturday the 27th, and Sunday the 28th.

I think it's more important to see this masterpiece movie now more than ever.

Rats, we'll be out of town. Well, we'll be back Sunday, but I'm thinking of going to see Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia at Melnitz that night.
