The Invictus Games begin today at The Hague in the Netherlands. “The Invictus Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women,” the games’ website tells us. From AP: “The sporting event for active service personnel and veterans who are ill, injured or wounded opens Saturday and ends April 22 in this Dutch city that calls itself the global center of peace and justice. Those concepts seem a world away to the team of 19 athletes from Ukraine and their supporters as they settle in The Hague for the games. […] This year’s games were twice delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. The first edition of the games was held in London in 2014, followed by Orlando in 2016, Toronto in 2017 and Sydney in 2018. Service personnel compete in athletics, archery, cycling, indoor rowing, powerlifting, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair basketball, and wheelchair rugby as well as a driving challenge organized by one of the event’s official partners, car maker Jaguar Land Rover.”
Today begins National Park Week, which reminds us of this observation by Steinbeck in Travels with Charley: “I must confess to a laxness in the matter of National Parks. I haven’t visited any of them. Perhaps this is because they enclose the unique, the spectacular, the astounding — the greatest waterfall, the deepest canyon, the highest cliff, the most stupendous works of man or nature. And I would rather see a good Brady photograph then Mount Rushmore. For it is my opinion that we enclose and celebrate the freaks of our nation and of our civilization. Yellowstone National Park is no mor representative of America than is Disneyland.”

The vandals, the few who crowbar rock art off the desert’s walls, who dig up graves, who punish the ground that holds intaglios, are people who devour history. Their self-centered scorn, their disrespect for ideas and images beyond their ken, create the awful atmosphere of loose ends in which totalitarianism thrives, in which the past is merely curious or wrong.
–From Barry Lopez’s “The Stone Horse,” Antaeus, Spring 1987.
Pierre just a reminder that Trump is not president any longer. But I understand how you can forget because Biden isn’t working.
Pierre Tristam says
Jefferson Davis isn’t president of his self-imagined confederacy of dunces either but he sure as hell still has trashloads of nostalgics around these parts.
Actually if Hillary replace Trump it would be more accurate cartoon.
