My camera battery died!
Barely got this last shot. Then it was closing time and the crowds spilled back out into the ninety degree heat. Being a woman of a certain age, Free-Friday two hours at the Morgan and travel time was somewhat wearying if pleasurable, so, at home, feet elevated, energy efficient A/C doing well set at 79 degrees, I half watched "Barbarella" on broadcast television, flashing back to the seventies when I first saw the film. How young Jane Fonda was, and me too, young and just at the lip of the feminist revolution, consciousness raising and all that...Fonda was married to Roger Vadim and totally in his thrall....she had a tendency to admire powerful men...at the same time, she too was undergoing a feminist conversion because a wealth of intelligent discourse was so suddenly available....Now she's gone all holy and Christian and I'm a nature worshiping Buddhist.  Go figure.
But, wasn't she stunning!

The Corbett Report

What is the Federal Reserve system? How did it come into existence? Is it part of the federal government? How does it create money? Why is the public kept in the dark about these important matters? In this feature-length documentary film, The Corbett Report explores these important question and pulls back the curtain on America's central bank.
