For some obscure reason I have never been fond of powerpoint presentations but pps files keep appearing in my inbox from well-meaning friends. Sometimes I delete without bothering to look, other times I delete after checking them out, and once in a while I have to restart my notebook because powerpoint files tend to jam up my operating system. However, there are often some striking images that accompany these powerpoint shows. I usually extract and archive them. Whenever local politics gets sticky and gooey and stinky, I redirect my attention to art and poetry and dance and photography. These powerful images tell their own story, no need for captions!
