Michael Bettencourt
Our Mediated Lives
This year, for the third year in a row, the Macy's fireworks fired off from the Hudson River. This meant, once again, that Brooklyn and Queens lost out, and lost out (again) to New Jersey, indignity of indignities.

Arthur Meiselman
The Story of Blue
Alan Blue didn't die last week. He probably will, soon. He isn't old and he isn't young. He has been a wayfarer through his life, one who never changed.

Nathan Thomas

 The world seems awash in varying beliefs and belief systems.  The situation seems particularly absurd in the U.S.A., given our media's hapless disability while working with something as abstract as a belief.

Les Marcott
The Legacy of Billy Jack

So why after 40 years do fans (me included) still feel compelled to watch it time and time again and sing its praises if it is so unremarkable.  It seems the cult film of 1971 still has a cult following.

Claudine Jones
Watching Elbows

So what's with this running? I've never done marathons, unless you count walking 7.2 miles from Ocean Beach to downtown Bush Street at age 19.

Martin Challis
Observing as Audience
Whatever it is that stops us in our tracks matters less than what we are being asked to notice.
