Something Terry posted caught my eye. Of course Worcester would have street art, it was just finding it on the web. Lol

I am thousands and thousands and thousands of miles away on a little island between Main Island Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, VI and I got a smile ear to ear. Street art !
  Click on the links and you will most likely be smiling ear to ear too.
  I have only been threw this city however The Folk Artist Jacob Knight told be about Worcester. Oh how he would of loved what's happening. Keep your eyes open and your camera's ready and just maybe a paint brush handy.
  I have been working on something about found art. Look at these pictures ! Wow.
  Oh so your like me thousands of miles away. I just bet that some where near you there is street art.

Fwd: Past Pope, Present Pope, Possible Future Pope



Saturday 22 February 2014
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Retired Pope Benedict XVI joined Pope Francis at a ceremony Saturday creating the cardinals who will elect their successor in an unprecedented blending of papacies past, present and future.

Benedict discreetly entered St. Peter's Basilica from a side entrance surrounded by a small entourage and was greeted with applause and tears from the stunned people in the pews. He smiled, waved and seemed genuinely happy to be there, taking his seat in the front row, off to the side, alongside the red-draped cardinals. Continue reading...

In the Ukraine Crisis, Don't Forget the Welfare of the Jewish and Muslim Minorities
The horrifying explosion of violence around Ukraine this week has apparently left as many 100 people dead and many more wounded. Amidst the specter of chaotic civil war, there is plenty or reason for concern for Ukraine's approximately 70,000 Jews and 500,000 Muslims, the majority of whom are Crimean Tatars. Continue reading...

On Being Weak
We're afraid that everyone will know we're an impostor, a fake and a weakling. But here's the thing: I am weak. And that's not something I need to be ashamed of. What is shameful is pretending I'm not. Continue reading...

Pathway to an Authentic, Real-World Faith
Clearly, humans are not the point or necessarily the purpose of creation. It is the ultimate ego-trip to imagine we are. Which makes the reading of our sacred literature all the more interesting to me. Continue reading...

Pope Francis and the Paradox of Faith
I periodically go to religious services for their moments of quiet and reflection. Too often I leave feeling the faith leader missed an opportunity to reach the congregants and to advance the cause of humanity. But I am also fortunate to know some faith leaders who, like the Pope, dare to show the way. Continue reading...

Jewish Intermarriage and Israel
To claim that the decline in my generation's attachment to Israel is principally due to our being a generation of less connected Jews is to cling too strongly to the ideology that the modern State of Israel is and always will be a bona fide marker of a Jew's commitment to his or her religion. Continue reading...

Inside the Conservative Campaign to Launch "Jim Crow-Style" Bills Against Gay Americans

By Dana Liebelson

Kansas set off a national firestorm last week when the GOP-controlled House passed a bill that would have allowed anyone to refuse to do business with same-sex couples by citing religious beliefs. The bill, which covered both private businesses and individuals, including government employees, would have barred same-sex couples from suing anyone who denies them food service, hotel rooms, social services, adoption rights, or employment—as long as the person denying the service said he or she had a religious objection to homosexuality. As of this week, the legislation was dead in the Senate.

But the Kansas bill is not a one-off effort. [READ MORE]
