Working hard

I have not had much to report this last month. I've been working on some construction projects trying to earn a living. Art has been on the back burner. It is frustrating when I read that the Barnes Foundation can raise $150 million to pray at a new alter of French art while I struggle to pay my taxes and buy food on an income of less then the national average. The debate about the poor from our southern neighbor crossing the border, has raised the concern for fair pay and what it is. Cheap labor keeps us all poor in many ways. Dr. Barnes had the courage to buy art from the heart, more of the wealthy Americans need to find that same courage rather then to keep looking at the past.
