Some dog photos become iconic because thery are published over and over again. Look at Daido’s stray dog. That dog has gotten almost as much ink as Madonna…Then there’s Frank’s blind Pomeranian which was seen on the Rolling Stone’s “Exile on Main Street” and that was enough to make the sad little creature a tiny part of modern culture. As far as which dog is king of the hill…No one can touch Koudelka’s Great Dane whirling in the snow…Totally in a class by its self…

For years Harlem’s schools had been left behind in terms of funding, but recently some of the better charter schools have been established in Harlem and other poorer neighborhoods. I wonder what it would be like to look at the headlines on the Daily News and see indecipherable characters. It must be very depressing. The things we take for granted…
