beautiful people and that State of the Union guy

See that guy in the middle photograph? I bet you and millions of people have seen him on their TV's when the President gives his State of the Union address every year. He's the guy that leans over his aisle seat and makes sure he gets a handshake photo-op with the President. His name is Eliot Engel.

Now, for the beautiful people - the musicians and the charming women who were artists in their own right (if I remember correctly, they were singers)

It's too bad that funding for the arts in our public schools has virtually disappeared. What kinds of people are we producing in our educational system when they don't have an appreciation for the arts?

Surely not well-rounded adults. That's for sure.

But for four hours this evening I was surrounded by beautiful artistic people plus that "other" guy.
