No one familiar with the history of this country can deny that congressional committees are useful. It is necessary to investigate before legislating, but the line between investigating and persecuting is a very fine one, and the junior Senator from Wisconsin has stepped over it repeatedly. His primary achievement has been in confusing the public mind, as between the internal and the external threats of Communism. We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty.

“Make it distant, difficult and dangerous, was the motto of Cooper Schoedsack Productions producers of the original King Kong movie. It is my motto as well during over a million and a hald miles of worldwide travel and adventures. I am a gonzo journalist like the mad genius writer Hunter Thompson, a lover of Kerouac, H. L. Mencken and Tennyson’s Ulysses.
Secrets of Eternal Youth is a shout that shakes the world, a wicked treasure house, a virtual cosmic library, and a colorful madcap tirade about almost everything in this life. It is an “out of the box” wild anarchistic freedom manifesto, filled with myriad adventures and cbaracters I encountered doing assignments with my cameras around our beautiful spinning earth.
We hover dangerously low over shark’s teeth, seracs or ice pinnacles tilted askew above gaping crevasses, a jagged ice bound moonscape, terrifying and beautiful as death. There is no place to land, no way out if we have a mechanical failure. Our big A-Star chopper’s turbine whines menacingly. The rotor blades fight for lift ‘whistling Dixie’ in this gleaming blue white frozen graveyard. “Hold it, stop, backup, terrific,” I shout at Brent, our pilot. We fly too low and slow, the Dead Man’s Curve, kept alive by the spinning rotors.
Before I go to de street rapper talk dat I learned growin’ up in de streets of Brooklyn, I gotta say that we need to and gonna question everything and everyone like dey all liars. I just listened to the famous atheist Richard Dawkins and the scientist Laurence Krause discussing Krause’s book “Something From Nothing,” on youtube in Australia. Strangely, they said nothing about how you get something from nothing, meaning the universe. I like Dawkins and am willing to hear Krause:
I knew Diane Arbus briefly when I managed legendary Art Director and Designer Alexey Brodovitch’s Design Laboratory workshops in the forties of the last century. The workshops were held in her friend fashion photographer Richard Avedon’s smaller studio above his large one in Manhattan.
Diane attended the workshops as a guest to watch or talk to us on occasion. She, of course, was on a mad path to self destruction, and sadly could not photograph anything besides the dark or freak side of humanity. I have photographed people in a hundred countries around the world on my million and a half miles journeys and assignments. My own belief and practice has always been to try to reveal the dignity of the human race with kindness, love and humility.

I took care of the legendary graphic designer and art director Alexey Brodovitch for the last 12 years of his life. Brodovitch had altered the course of photography with his transforming work at Harper’s Bazaar where he featured many later famous photographers unknown here. Penn and Avedon, two of the greatest photographers were his assistants at their beginning. Under his mastery, Harper’s Bazaar became world famous for its revolutionary design and photography, and very profitable.
There is no limit to the number of new ideas, facts and information our plastic brains can assimilate in their cosmic sized reservoirs of limitless neurons and infinite connections. The oversize human brain may be the most complicated organ in the universe. It is informed by quantum physics and metaphysics, the TAO, Zen and Eastern philosophy, capable of growing younger each year. Immortality is not a dream eternal youths, gals and guys, it is our birthright.
We are part of all who we have met. It is not only passion and joy in the wild, free and unknown, glowing dawns on distant shores, voyages of body and mind that never end, that alone fuel the energy and the need to go, it is desire!
