"basically cannon fodder"

"Nobody knows who the enemy is, 'cause he never goes in hiding
He's slitting our throats right in front of our eyes
While we pull the casket, he's riding
Better get it together, better get it together!
And see what's happening to you and you and you!"
(eugene mcdaniels "headless heroes")

Mural Arts Eagles Paint Day, April 28, 2014

Couldn't have asked for a better day for this year's Eagles Paint Day. It's always a joy to be a part of this beautiful event. This year I got to help paint a portrait of Frida Kahlo, hang with a bunch of adorable kindergardeners, and I got a photo with the man, #9, Nick Foles! Great day. Price Hall Elementary School, North Philly. Lead Artist: David McShane, City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program
