  4. It would have been much better if Ayn Rand would have added another hero to the story, a scientist of some sort, who could have cured those retarded children and give them sanity.
  5. Michael, thank you for the good words. You have forgotten to mention that Erica is not only very intelligent but also very beautiful. Ciro
  6. BB: I don't accept the idea that to be mistaken is the equivalent of being evil. Do you? I think to be mistaken is not the equivalent of being evil, but only when we honestly believe the our actions will not cause people to suffer or die. Ciro
  7. How sad. Is that all that you see, Ciro, when you look at the sculpture of Lapper? An object of disgust rather than a human being with whom to identify? Is your only reaction to be aghast that your tender sensibilities have been offended or that your art rules have been disobeyed? Maybe the word disgust is not appropriate here, because I sound like I don't have compassion for people like Lepper, but I do. What I meant was that when I look at deformed art, like Lepper's, it disturbs me. It makes me feel sick to my stomach. It is not a feeling of anger that I feel, but a sense of fear, more or less. Ciro
  8. Art is not about shocking people with disgust, but to inspire them with the good the sublime, with the best. And Mr. Newberry, does just that. Thank you! Michael. Ciro
  9. I am amazed at the patience he had. I do not have that, If I do not like something, I quit. But he perservered Suvine, are you talking about Frank?

Dear Angie, who are you talking about? lhahahahahahhahah best to you my friend!

  12. Just give it time to develop-- living with him is different than traveling with him is different than camping with him is different than etc. etc. Moving is a huge step and I didn't officially decide until we saw each other two times... and even then, I have a "back out" plan. Jenna, If you were my daughter, my advice to you would be, to have fun and enjoy life, but before you decide to get merried with your Italian boyfriend, become an affirmed professional, first. Ciro
  13. How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days. Happy birthday, Barbara. Ciro
  14. MW writes:I've worked hard all my life—for others, making others rich, while I got used up like a dirty rag and tossed away. During my 32 years in business, I have had many people working for me, and -I have never used up anyone like a dirty rag and then tossed him away . A good business man, would never use good workers like dirty rags, it would be against his own interest and that of the company. Ciro
  15. I wonder why Phil has never quit posting on forums, where he has been humiliated and misrespected many times? Ciro
  16. If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas. George Bernard Shaw
  17. What is the artist trying to say? I don't think Mr. Newberry is talking to you! Ciro
  18. Michael I am the happy owner of Artemis! I met Michael Newberry couple of months ago. I have to say that beside being a great Artist, he is also a very very nice person. Ciao
  19. Brant: As I read that scene Dominique could have stopped that "rape" any time she wanted. Brant, I am courious to know how could she have stopped that? Ciro
  20. I think that Ayn Rand -apart her philosophy- wrote the book also with the intent to make a lot of money from its sales. Rape scenes, are included today, in almost every book or movie--especially in old movies. The majority of men, love to watch a woman being raped. Rape scenes, is a tactic that every writer and filmmaker uses when making movies or writing books. And thus, I don't think that there is anything of philosophical in the scene where Roark raped Dominique, it was written that way for the only purpose to sell more copies, I think. Now days a Martini is more appropriate. Ciro
  21. Angie, here is the recipe for the chicken broth 1 Put the leftover bones and skin from a chicken carcass into a large stock pot and cover with cold water. Add celery, onion, carrots, and Italian parsley. 2 Add salt and pepper, about 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/4 tsp of pepper. 3 Bring to a boil and reduce heat to bring the stock to a low simmer. 4 Simmer uncovered at least 4 hours, occassionally skimming off the foam that comes to the surface. 5 Remove the bones and strain the stock.
