ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

Save the Urban Anglos

When September and Corina were small, and we still lived in
our adobe house on Cedar Street, we used to say we could
probably send their photos out, ala Save the Children,
and people would surely contribute to help get them a decent life...
This image is part of a page from one of our family scrapbooks,
of which exactly none are finished...yeah yeah some day soon...
