Photo of the Day: The Clintons with Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Photo of the Day: President Clinton with The Rev. Jeremiah Wright

The recent coverage of Rev. Jeremiah Wright has often described him as a marginal, almost fringe figure, but Trinity Church is a major Chicago institution, and Wright has long been a prominent pastor on the American scene. This is a photograph of Jeremeiah Wright and President Clinton, which was taken on September 11, 1998, the date of a White House gathering for religious leaders. Hillary Clinton, according to her recently-released schedule for that day, was present at the gathering. At that White House meeting for religious leaders, President Clinton told the assembled clerics, at the depth of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, that he had “repented.”

Echoes of the Montmarte: Grizzly Bear in Paris

The Parisian Left Bank: Montmarte

Home-recorded songs can feel incomplete, while also being as tantalizingly indicative as the sketches before a painting. However, the outlines, though interesting in their own respect, often are not as satisfying as the finished version. Grizzly Bear, originally from Brooklyn, however, have approached song writing as a craft to master from their very first album, Horn of Plenty onwards. With their sense of lo-fi connoisseurship, the music is sweet, and magically haunting melodies are their mainstay. Grizzly Bear always craft their songs from start to finish, with meticulous instrumentation and arrangements as their specialty.
