Remember that interesting picture of Rosa Parks that Daisy drew? I know some of you remember it. It haunts you in your dreams!

Daisy had created that poster for a class contest. Each kid drew some sort of biographical poster. Although Daisy had added some artistic flourishes and a few sentences of biographical text about Rosa to the poster after I took the picture, my photo did capture the poster's essence. Hell, let's show it again.


Anyway, the results of the contest were decided and Daisy's poster came in 2nd place! I can only assume that the first place poster was an image of Martin Luther King, Jr. that was burned in effigy.

You must frame that poster. Good for Daisy. I knew when I saw it that it was going to win, I'm just sad that it didn't get first place. I think there might have been some bribery from the other contestant going on in the back ground. That Rosa picture, wow. I love that Rosa picture.

Daisy has a possible future career as a court sketch artist. In the Congo.

I laughed out loud when you posted the first post about it. And I laughed again today. You know, Picasso had to start somewhere; maybe she has a bright future in modern art.

JNP, Aaaaah! You're a person, a tree, a person, a tree! What's a literalist to think?!?!

Sara, thanks! I don't know about Daisy's future as an artist, I'm just pleased that no one has misinterpreted my posts and called me a racist bastard.

I'm still trying to recover from moment I first laid my eyes on that blasted thing.

Now I don't know if I'll ever recover. Thanks, Mike!
