Constantin Meunier, "The Removal of the Cracked Melting Pot"

Bastille Day on the Côte d’Azur, and some truck-driving, rancorous loon has deliberately ploughed through the revelling crowd, killing 80 or more people and spreading terror.

Driving through my town on a sunny day, listening to “Melting Pot” by Blue Mink, I can’t help feeling dazed and confused. We at The Varnished Culture prefer love to war, art to violence, culture to confusion, but it seems we can’t have column ‘A’ without column ‘B’.  How about Voici à Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité!
