Elemenalenal - ...for example

Elemenalenal - ...for example, Mark Rothko's works. One would call it the dumbest of art there is, just plain color fields, but people who know what modern art is really talking about would call it one of the most powerful there is. See, there are interpretations, but those who know art clearly see one thing he was actually aiming for and misunderstanding is quite impossible.

The notion that there is a correct interpretation of art seems ludicrous, imo.

Late again. Everything seems

Late again. Everything seems to have been covered and the OP has driven on by....

But, I have this overwhelming need to point out that the quote in post #75 by the OP comes from this website:


which is an online resource study for students, up to high school levels, I assume, which includes the means for students to produce their own flashcards for the subjects they study:

flash cards

It appears to be a very popular and successful site. However sometimes good intentions can get unintentionally thwarted. The quote used comes from a card (you can find it scrolling down several 'pages' if you subscribe) which reads,

"Penal labor in the United States. Penal labor in the United States, including a form of slavery or involuntary servitude, is explicitly allowed by the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. This form of legal slavery is only allowed when used as punishment for committing a crime."

To be completely fair, it is a poorly rendered explanation of the 13th ammendment which reads:

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

As I read the 13th Ammendment it forbids the existence of slavery in the United States, period. It then also forbids involuntary servitude. It allows the exception of the existence of involuntary servitude in the United States, only as a punishment against those convicted of crimes, as penal servitude, according to the laws under the Constitution. Penal servitude is not a form of slavery, it is a legal punishment for violation of legislated laws.

I am not an American citizen, but I have always been impressed with the intentions inherent in the Constitution of the United States of America.. and freely admit Australia stole quite a few parts of it for our constitution in 1900...we stole a lot of your tv game shows too.
