Have A Thoughtful, Memorable 2019 Memorial Day (But Calling It “Happy” Is Tacky).

Memorial Day, a U.S. Federal Holiday (on the last Monday of May), is for remembering all the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. armed forces.

As such ‘Happy’ might not be the best greetings for this holiday since we are honoring those departed. ‘Reflective‘ may be the best sentiment.

Just a thought.

The Ugly Racist Incident At Boston’s Famed ‘Museum Of Fine Arts’ (MFA) Is Distressing & Unexpected.

It is BOSTON — the age old, U.S. bastion of liberalism, tolerance and culture. That is what gets me. I could understand this if it was in the South or even in New Hampshire! But, in dear Boston. What is happening? What has gone wrong?

And the MFA of all places. The lovely MFA! We had a delightful day there just over a year ago and I was hoping to visit again. This is upsetting.

From what I can see they banned two patrons. That is it. Claims that a ‘work study’ who was implicated has already left the country. I find that hard to believe. None of the staff has been fired? Not the security guard or whoever instructed the guard to be obnoxious. This is NOT right.

I am ashamed for the MFA. This reflects badly of poor, dear Boston.
