Unexpected Murals and Masterpieces

I already tweeted this, but for the Twitter-averse, I wanted you to be aware of some new blogs I added to the blogroll.

A gentleman named Paul created a wonderful blog called Gargoyles & Grotesques, which I’ve adored for some time, and he has another blog specifically devoted to street art — Unexpected Murals & Masterpieces.

I love the back of the Do Not Enter sign on Winfield Street, and I especially am grateful that he grabbed a picture of the beatnik on Irving Street, which I’d been unable to get a good picture of before it was taken down.

Keep up the good work!

    Sometimes liberty requires disobedience to the law, e.g., Thoreau, King, Gandhi,Jesus, Sam Adams, etc.

      “Obedience to law is liberty” is the motto on the old Worcester courthouse. I acquired an essay about that motto during a recent book sale at the Worcester Historical Museum and have been meaning to scan and post that. (You can also find a copy of that essay — “Obedience to law is liberty”: the inscriptions upon the Worcester Court House by Arthur P. Rugg — at the Worcester Public Library.)

      That inscription used to bother me quite a bit, and I think it’s bothered quite a few Worcester residents.

      I don’t know that I agree with it from a man-made laws perspective.

      However, I totally agree with it from a religious perspective. That is, obeying God’s laws and aligning your will to the will of God will ultimately make you free.
