Peter Singer's interview in the WSJ Mega Banks and the Next Financial Crisis

Little Augury for lovely lavender and Winterhalter portraits


It's About Time for portraits by French Neoclassical painter Adelaide Labille Guiard and lots more amazing art

and this story about how the most infamous mistress in China filled her bank account with billions as the men who made her rich languish in jail.

I always learn something when I visit Little Augury.

I'm off to read the Chinese mistress piece too.

Re your comments earlier - you should come to England! xx
