Why? Because I’m a graphic artist and I can’t resist stuff like this. Why not? Politics.

Oh man… I’m about to go nuts with this…
Very cool! :D
I agree with Croupier… and that is all I can say or Alan will ban me.
I would like to play with it, but it wants Flash 10; that hoses up my WordPress media imports. I had to drop back to Flash 9 to make it work.
I debated long and hard about writing about the inauguration. I figured that everyone, including me, would OD on it by the end of the day. A couple of friends pushed me over the edge, though, and got me to thinking about how far we’ve come since I was a kid and my grandfather lived in a Sundown Town, I had never touched a person of another color until I was in my early pre-teens, at how I’ve always tried not to let race consciousness influence how I deal with folks, but how it’s still there.
And then, I realized how much more enlightened my kid brother is, who’s only 10 years younger than me. What was most pleasing was realizing that my son once described a photographer who worked for me as “that tall, skinny guy who was really funny,” not by starting out by identifying his as Black.
Here are my full thoughts:
That’s where I am. My biggest hope is that our new president makes it through his term/s safely. As someone who lived through JFK, Malcolm X, RFK, MLK and the assassination attempts on Presidents Ford and Reagan, I kept waiting for something awful to happen the night he stepped on stage in Chicago and at the Inauguration.
I “hope” no one takes this TOO seriously (Tim, I’m talking to you.. ;-)).
Really, I was just having fun playing around with Shepard Fairey’s pop culture icon and liked how these turned out. And anyway, what could be more hopeful than a woman riding a utility bicycle? If anything is going to save the world, it’s that grandest of inventions, the bicycle… :-)
Very nice, Ken. Thanks for sharing…
Stop baiting me, really.

My normally healthy blood pressure is going up, I better get back to work.
I would agree that a anyone on a bike is a fine site, and a lovely woman on a fine bicycle even more so. You are blessed.
Bicycles are a fine tool to fight oil costs, car costs, obesity, heart disease, etc., and have fun, experience GOD’s creation and relieve stress.
You know how much I appreciate your site/blog /community you have created, and am so happy about your growing sponsor list. Keep up the great work and site.
If anything is going to save the world… “Stop baiting me, really.”
Tim, seriously, you are the MOST LITERAL person I’ve ever known. And I mean that (or do I?)…LOL.
“A figure of speech, sometimes termed a rhetoric, or locution, is a word or phrase that departs from straightforward, literal language. Figures of speech are often used and crafted for emphasis, freshness of expression, or clarity.”
Have an awesome day… :-)
