I believe that this instinct to perpetuate useless work is, at bottom, simply fear of the mob. The mob (the thought runs) are such low animals that they would be dangerous if they had leisure; it is safer to keep them too busy to think. A rich man who happens to be intellectually honest, if he is questioned about the improvement of working conditions, usually says something like this:

‘We know that poverty is unpleasant; in fact, since it is so remote, we rather enjoy harrowing ourselves with the thought of its unpleasantness. But don’t expect us to do anything about it. We are sorry for you lower classes, just as we are sorry for a, cat with the mange, but we will fight like devils against any improvement of your condition. We feel that you are much safer as you are. The present state of affairs suits us, and we are not going to take the risk of setting you free, even by an extra hour a day. So, dear brothers, since evidently you must sweat to pay for our trips to Italy, sweat and be damned to you.’

Dreams

I had a dream last night.

A realistic, freaky not sure what happened dream.

I was in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the chest down. I had been that way for a while.

The dream was about coming to terms with it, realizing that it was my lot in life, I was in a chair and so it would be.

There was lots of anger and tears and yelling and finally peace.

When I woke up, I swear to dog, I was surprised I could roll over. Surprised I was ambulatory.

Surprised.

“I thought your cover picture was really marvelous,” Kennedy wrote the artist after the work appeared on Time, “but I don’t have red spots all over my face.”

Roy Lichtenstein, famous for his comic book-style pop art, created very few portraits. Our National Portrait Gallery writes about this rare commission from Time Magazine and the process the artist used to create it.
