    Obamas unveil their portraits, and it feels like a reunion
    Barack and Michelle Obama, joined by dozens of former staffers, return to the White House for a celebratory moment

    “Thanks for letting us invite a few friends to the White House,” Obama said to the Bidens. “We will try not to tear up the place.”

    “We trusted him, all of you in this room,” Biden said of the man who elevated him to the vice presidency. “We believed in him. We counted on him — and I still do. Mr. President, that’s why the country elected you twice. It’s why you’ll be considered one of the most consequential presidents in our history.”

    “Traditions like this matter, not just for those of us who hold these positions, but for everyone participating in and watching our democracy.” (fmr First Lady Obama)

    A Picture Says A Thousand Crimes

    The Department of Justice reveals more evidence against Donald Trump, Republicans try to run from their extreme abortion positions, Joe Biden caps off a big few weeks with a primetime speech, White House Infrastructure Czar Mitch Landrieu talks about the President’s infrastructure roll out, and Dan and Jon play another round of Take Appreciator.

    Prince William’s official statement released today:

    “On Thursday, the world lost an extraordinary leader, whose commitment to the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth was absolute. So much will be said in the days ahead about the meaning of her historic reign.”

    I, however, have lost a grandmother. And while I will grieve her loss, I also feel incredibly grateful. I have had the benefit of The Queen’s wisdom and reassurance into my fifth decade. My wife has had twenty years of her guidance and support. My three children have got to spend holidays with her and create memories that will last their whole lives.

    She was by my side at my happiest moments. And she was by my side during the saddest days of my life. I knew this day would come, but it will be some time before the reality of life without Grannie will truly feel real.”

    All herein from the Shakester:

    “The king is but a man, as I am; the violet smells to him as it doth to me; the element shows to him as it doth to me; all his senses have but human conditions; his ceremonies laid by, in his nakedness he appears but a man; and though his affections are higher mounted than ours, yet, when they stoop, they stoop with the like wing.”
    (Henry V (4.1.155-166))

    “Kent. Where’s the king? Gent. Contending with the fretful elements; Bids the wind blow the earth into the sea, Or swell the curled waters ‘bove the main, That things might change or cease; tears his white hair, Which the impetuous blasts, with eyeless rage, Catch in their fury and make nothing of; Strives in his little world of man to outscorn The to-and-fro-conflicting wind and rain. This night, wherein the cub-drawn bear would couch, The lion and the belly-pinched wolf Keep their fur dry, unbonneted he runs, And bids what will take all.”
    (King Lear)

    “You have but mistook me all the while… I live by bread like you, taste grief, feel want, need friends. Conditioned thus how can you call me king?”
    (Richard II, Act 3 Scene 2)

    “O God, I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself a
    king of infinite space—were it not that I have bad dreams.”
    “Which dreams indeed are ambition, for the very
    substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream.”

    “This blessèd plot, this earth, this realm, this England This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings, . . . This land of such dear souls, this dear dear land.”
    (Richard II)

    “Here I and sorrows sit; Here is my throne, bid kings come bow to it.”
    (KIng John, Act 3, scene 1).

    “For thy sweet love remember’d such wealth brings That then I scorn to change my state with kings.”
    (Sonnet 29)

    “Th’ abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.”
    (Julius Caesar (2.1.19-20))

    “When daffodils begin to peer, With heigh! the doxy, over the dale, Why, then comes in the sweet o’ the year; For the red blood reigns in the winter’s pale. The white sheet bleaching on the hedge, With heigh! the sweet birds, O, how they sing! Doth set my pugging tooth on edge; For a quart of ale is a dish for a king.”
    (The Winter’s Tale, Act 4, scene 3.)

    “Time’s glory is to command contending kings, To unmask falsehood, and bring truth to light.”
    (Shakespeare, poem.)

    “Fairest Cordelia, that art most rich, being poor; Most choice, forsaken; and most loved, despised! Thee and thy virtues here I seize upon: Be it lawful I take up what’s cast away. Gods, gods! ’tis strange that from their cold’st neglect My love should kindle to inflamed respect. Thy dowerless daughter, king, thrown to my chance, Is queen of us, of ours, and our fair France: Not all the dukes of waterish Burgundy Can buy this unprized precious maid of me. Bid them farewell, Cordelia, though unkind: Thou losest here, a better where to find.”
    (King Lear, Act 1, scene 1.)

    “I heard a bird so sing, Whose music, to my thinking, pleased the king”.
    (Henry IV, Part 2; Act 5, scene 5.)

    “Strong reasons make strong actions let us go If you say ay, the king will not say no.”
    (King John, Act III, scene IV.)

    “There’s such divinity doth hedge a king. That treason doth but peep to what it would.”
    (Hamlet, Act IV, scene V.)

    “The quality of mercy is not strain’d, It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest; It blesseth him that gives and him that takes: ‘Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes The throned monarch better than his crown; His sceptre shows the force of temporal power, The attribute to awe and majesty, Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings; But mercy is above this sceptred sway; It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
    It is an attribute to God himself; And earthly power doth then show likest God’s When mercy seasons justice.”
    (The Merchant of Venice, Act IV, scene I.)

    Matthew Henson Scholarship Supports Cold Weather Expedition Training

    Illinois-based PolarExplorers announced the open application period for the 2023-2024 Matthew Henson Scholarship which honors the legacy of polar explorer Matthew Henson (1866-1955) by inspiring people of color – particularly emerging outdoor guides or people with current positions or future goals of leadership in the outdoor industry – to embrace cold weather adventures, and to build the necessary skill set to thrive (and not just survive) during cold weather expedition travel.

    This two-year scholarship, awarded annually, provides two consecutive years of fully subsidized participation in PolarExplorer’s Polar Shakedown Training. “The first year focuses on skill development and an overview of cold weather expedition travel,” says Annie Aggens, director of PolarExplorers. “The second year dives into leadership development and hands-on experience guiding in the extreme cold.”

    The scholarship is open to all people of color who are passionate about wilderness travel and outdoor leadership, who aspire to have a career in the outdoor industry, and who are looking to increase their skill set to include cold weather camping and leadership.

    Qualified applicants should have previous experience with backcountry camping, the desire to inspire others, a strong commitment to developing positive relationships, an appetite for a steep learning curve, and a level of fitness that can accommodate long days of hard work.

    Applications are due by December 1, 2022. The scholarship recipient will be notified by December 15, 2022. The dates for the 2023 training are January 30 to February 4.

      Here is the preceding article:

      “Forgotten Explorers Recognized at Bowdoin College

      J.R. Harris, chair of the DEI committee of The Explorers Club shed light on the stories of explorers forgotten by history while advocating for inclusion in the outdoors during a lecture at Maine’s Bowdoin College on Sept. 7.

      The lecture entitled “Sambo or Superman: The Rocky Road to Recognition,” focused on the dangers of leaving important figures in the history of the outdoors, such as Matthew Henson, an African-American man, and four Inughuit hunters who accompanied Robert Peary on his expedition to the Arctic, to be unrecognized or misrepresented, according to Maile Winterbottom writing in the Bowdoin Orient (Sept. 9).

      One of the key points of the lecture was a story Harris told about Henson (see next story) and the Inughuit hunters who had been on Peary’s expedition and not recognized until recently.

      “While Peary returned home a hero, Henson’s considerable accomplishments were largely belittled and endured even by Peary himself,” Harris said. “Peary went on to become president of The Explorers Club, but Henson was denied membership until 1937, when he was made an honorary member almost 30 years after his dash to the pole, and 17 years after Peary’s death in 1920.”

      Henson was not the only person to go unrecognized on Peary’s mission to the Arctic. The four Inughuit hunters who aided Peary on his expedition had been largely forgotten by history until last spring when they were given charter membership by The Explorers Club.

      Bowdoin’s Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum is dedicated entirely to all things Arctic. It is named after Arctic explorers and Bowdoin graduates Robert E. Peary (Class of 1877) and Donald B. MacMillan (Class of 1898).”

    Prince Harry, who served in the British Army for 10 years and was deployed to Afghanistan twice, lost his military titles when he and his wife Meghan Markle stepped back from their senior royal roles in March 2020.

    His spokesperson said: “Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex will wear a morning suit throughout events honouring his grandmother. His decade of military service is not determined by the uniform he wears, and we respectfully ask that focus remain on the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”
