Today's Pic of the Day[edit]

Picture of the day
Portrait of a Lady

Portrait of a Lady is a small oil-on-oak panel painting executed around 1460 by the Netherlandish painter Rogier van der Weyden. Using geometric shapes to form the lines of the woman's veil, neckline, face, and arms, the work conveys the subject's humility and reserved demeanour through her fragile physique, lowered eyes and tightly grasped fingers. This is the only known portrait of a woman accepted as an autograph work by van der Weyden, and has been described as "famous among all portraits of women of all schools". It is in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

To Do List[edit]

He proposed tax cuts in 1962; they were passed in 1964. [3] On a larger subject: the "Domestic Policies" section of the JFK article seems pretty dismissive. Certainly it's wrong to imply, as strongly as it does, that the tax cuts passed in 1964 owed little to his efforts. John Broughton 15:02, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
A quick scan of my old Ency. Britannica noted as accomplishments: Cuban missle crisis, which may have helped lead Kruschev to sign, 10 mos later, the nuclear test ban treaty. It notes that Congress was indeed wary of his domestic plans (one that passed was the Peace Corps) in part because of the closeness of the election -- but that Kennedy was convinced he would win a 1964 landslide against Goldwater, and get the mandate for the massive tax cut, and civil rights leglislation that he wanted. -- Sholom 21:13, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
