Down on the Corner, Out in the Street

"It is not enough to know the world is absurd and restrict yourself to merely pointing out that fact...It is wrong to expect a reward for your struggles. The reward is the act of struggle itself, not what you win. Even though you can't expect to defeat the absurdity of the world, you must make the attempt. That's morality, that's religion, that's art, that's life."
Phil Ochs, October 1965
We took this photograph today in our little home town. One of our neighbor merchants has put a TV outside of his store and has it playing the Downing Street Memo hearing non-stop. He is making the attempt to defeat the absurdity of the world. We share his attempts with you.
