Things that are good, Ep. 3

Diego Rivera considered the murals he painted at the Detroit Institute of Arts among his best work. Standing in Rivera Court on a sunny afternoon (all that imagery! all that light!), one has to agree. Then again, one is biased -- I think that the DIA is truly the happiest place on earth: Here, you can pretend for a few hours that Detroit is perfect. Unfortunately, just like at the Magic Kingdom, eventually it closes and you have to leave.
