New Afghan Law Disastrous for Women, Says National Geographic Photographer
Hi, everyone - my name is Lucian Dixon (@lwdgrfx on Twitter) and I am The Political Carnival's web designer. Neither Paddy nor Laffy are able to post with their regular frequency at the moment, so you'll see posts from me and other guest commenters somewhat more often than usual. My posts will mostly focus on art and literature and/or Europe (though not exclusively).
A quote on art and politics from John Adams, our second US president:
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.
