Beautiful run on cape cod. My life rocks
tread softly, because you tread upon my dreams.
“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” - Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
Salzburg you beautiful thing
"Every sane person with a functioning human heart feels pain for the unbelievable human suffering that is happening in Syria right now. But past experience shows that the U.S. is terrible at intervening in foreign affairs without causing additional problems that are often at least as bad as the events we tried to stop. I think this alone should counsel the U.S. against intervening in Syria. As the old saying goes, we shouldn’t forget history, lest we continue to repeat it."
Read this whole piece. It’s fantastic, as is obvious from this quote alone.(via hipsterlibertarian)
