The C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience at Washington College, of which I’m a board member, and the National Portrait Gallery are sponsoring an afternoon discussion today with filmmaker John Waters.
Waters will reflect on Cy Twombly’s “Letter of Resignation.”
I’m going to be there — and while on my way there (and back) am thinking about Barack Obama’s greetings to Iran and Ayatollah Khamenei’s response back. I don’t want to offer a simple salute to Obama for the positive and constructive tone of his greetings.
More needs to be said — but it will be posted later.
Enjoy the first days of Spring.
