The myth about the Statue of Liberty

For many Americans, the Statue of Liberty, dedicated 135 years ago this month, is an enduring symbol of the idea that the United States is a nation of immigrants.

Now President Joe Biden, watching his legislative agenda stall, needs to be bolder and forgive as much student loan debt as possible for as many people as possible. It's good politics, and once done, will be hard for Republicans to undo. It's extremely good economics, as student loan debt holds tens of millions of people back. And it's about damn time.

His art is worth millions but he's ditching his signature style

Each morning this past summer, artist George Condo arrived at his New York studio, turned on the same John Coltrane "Live in Sweden" CD that he's worked to for years and began exorcising the figures in his paintings.
