Today's Pic of the Day[edit]

Elisha was a Hebrew prophet and a wonder-worker who is venerated in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. According to the Books of Kings, he was anointed the successor of Elijah and served as the "prophet in Israel" for more than six decades. During this time, many miracles were attributed to him.

Shown here is The Miracle at the Grave of Elisha, an oil painting on panel which was completed by the Dutch painter Jan Nagel in 1596. It depicts part of the Biblical account of Elisha, a miracle that occurred after his death. Following 2 Kings 13:21, the painting shows a dead man who was "revived, and stood up on his feet" after touching Elisha's interred bones.Painting: Jan Nagel

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)
