Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!

-Wordsworth: Composed Upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1803

Beautiful photos. Everythig looks so crisp and clean.

From Inwood said...

So here hath been dawning
Another blue day;
Think will thou let it
Slip useless away.

But the sterile forming
Of what looks like Plaza Cadman,
Makes not my heart a warming;
Gives thoughts of builder badman.

BTW, re your earlier post

"The generally accepted rule is pink for the boy and blue for the girl."

Your picture has both!

The quid-pro-quo of free housing for teachers: A tacit agreement that they keep mum about questionable practices the school might engage in.

Free housing is only one of the ways a school buys off its teaching staff.

Of course, that's one of the reasons Althouse has a Blog to begin with---better to stir the pot in the blog, rather than stir the pot with her employer.
