Tuesday, July 17, 2007 The Sixties Persist

A bit of Americana at Venice Beach where the sixties never ended Diane's Ark, "The Spirit of Venice," and the companion truck in the lot where Rose Avenue ends at Ocean Front Walk.   Note the Dennis Kucinich sticker he was born on October 8, 1946, so that fits, as in 1968, the year just about everything happened, he would have been twenty-two. Kucinich is, of course, known by many as "The Peace Candidate" he did receive the 2003 Gandhi Peace Award. He also re-introduced legislation to create a United States Department of Peace (HR 808) on February 5, 2007. He may have been Mayor of Cleveland once, but they like Congressman Kucinich at Venice Beach.
