MOBA 101 - an Introduction, hosted by Groveland Library and Groveland-Nichols House

This is the Museum of Bad Art
(Art too bad to be ignored)



Trust me, this is so bad, it's good.

This event will be virtual, via Zoom, on

"The pieces in the MOBA collection range from the works of talented artists that have gone awry to works of exuberant, although crude, execution by artists barely in control of the brush. What they all have in common is a special quality that set them apart in one way or another from the merely incompetent."

So, Republicans object to the $2k stimulus check because it's too broad, some don't need it

Maybe they have a point... (cough!, cough!)

Maybe it should be needs based.

Those who have little or nothing should get more, those that have lots, should get less or, maybe, pay.

We could call it Universal Basic Income, or UBI for short....

I'm sure that having addressed their objections, Republicans would immediately embrace the new plan.

What a Difference a Day Makes - Dinah Washington

Word of the day: Sprezzatura (n)

Studied carelessness, especially as a characteristic quality or style of art or literature.

Examples of Sprezzatura in a sentence:

"The grease stains on Trump's tie reveal an unexpected sprezzatura."

Valentina Lisitsa plays Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2

Nothing better for letting your exuberance explode.


Anoushka Shankar - Dancing in Madness

In honor and respect for our VP's Indian heritage.


I thought it was darling to see Joe help Dr. Biden into The Beast, then go around to enter himself

True chivalry never goes out of fashion.

Tom Jones - 24 hours


24 hours to go, and not a damned thing he can do about it.

Duty to act when a defendant has created a danger

A person who creates a dangerous situation may be under a duty to take reasonable steps to avert that danger.

Let's say, hypothetically, that a person incites a mob into sedition and insurrection using lies. And after the mob attacks, destroys property, kills some police officers and continues to stand in defiance of the government, the person who incited the mob takes no steps to quell the insurrection and refuses to retract the lie, or to take steps to calm the mob by telling the truth.

Is that person criminally negligent?

What if that refusal to retract the lie continues, hypothetically, even after that person has left office and no longer has the power to pardon. Is that person criminally negligent for any failure to act that occurs and continues to occur after the person has left office?

What about other people who repeat the lie and refuse to correct it? Are they also criminally negligent?

Is a failure to utter a truth after uttering a lie, still a lie?

Just wondering.

Comey, you POS, STFU! No pardon for Trump! nt
