Bwoglines: The Joy Of Painting Edition

Bob Ross painting Low Library, colorized (1995)

We folks here at Bwog firmly believe that you can paint any and all of your problems away.

Happening in the world: Researchers in the Amazon have discovered the Electrophorus voltai, dubbed “The world’s most powerful electric eel.” For some the news is shocking. For others it’s electrifying. (The Guardian)

Happening in the nation: President Trump no longer has a national security advisor in John Bolton. Trump: You’re fired. Bolton: I quit! (NYT)

Happening in NYC: Today marks the 18th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. From 8:39 a.m. to approximately 12:30 p.m., the annual name-reading ceremony will take place at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. Livestream here. (NY Post)

Happening on Campus: Wien Hall will be hosting a friendly water-color painting session from 6 – 8 p.m. Paint anything! Paint Homer’s description of the horses in the Iliad. Paint your final memory of the McDonald’s on 125th and Broadway that recently closed.  “There are no mistakes, just happy little accidents.” Or are there?

Prediction: Today is the day I get cold called in PrezBo’s free speech class. The rest of y’all can rest easy.
