Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. - Karl R. Popper

^^^ He's very good.  The tonality, color, shadows and composition are outstanding.  The subject matter and coverage is long over-due.  These groups of great people have always been "in the shadows...." as far as the general public is concerned.  Sadly, outta sight, outta mind.  Oh I wish it were not true! His personal story reflects much.

Consider scrolling down for some shots from his web site.   

Warning: You may want to avoid the above site if you have any work reservations. Most shots are ~~mostly work-safe - depending though. I could see 1 or 2 getting you into trouble.
 
Warning: I would NOT pass thru to his web site from work. V.

He's very talented, and I hope his work gets a wider audience.

Just a word for anyone who sees the pics and thinks about copying them and pasting them here,  he is a professional photographer, and I'm sure his work is copyright protected, so do not post his photos directly to this site.

Posting a link is fine, however.

A fascist who believes same-sex marriage is abnormal looks on track to win in Italy:

We might end up with one of those as the next governor of Pennsylvania.

They're voting this weekend in Italy. You don't vote until November. So I'll worry about that fascist later.
