No, really: Team Trump 'reached out' to South Dakota governor about adding a head to Mount Rushmore

Donald Trump has repeatedly and far-too-publicly mused over wanting his own face carved into Mount Rushmore. This we knew. Over the weekend, however, we learned that it has gone a bit farther than mere public desire: On Saturday, The New York Times reported that an unnamed Trump White House aide «reached out» to the office of South Dakota's Republican governor to inquire as to what the process of adding new heads to Mount Rushmore might actually be. Oh dear. Oh, oh dear.

Blamestorm begins over botched ballot delivery in Puerto Rico's primary election

“Ballots have not arrived,” reads a sign at a polling station in Puerto Rico. This was the story at multiple locations across the island for Sunday’s primary election for governor, resident commissioner (non-voting representative to Congress), and for the legislature. The finger-pointing to place blame has already begun, with much of it falling upon the president of the Elections Commission, Juan Ernesto Dávila. However, the party in power, headed by appointed Governor Wanda Vázquez—who is running for reelection—is catching a ton of flak as well. Here on the mainland, right-wingers like Geraldo Rivera have gotten into the act, mindlessly and inaccurately blaming Democrats. The end result is that some of the polling locations are scheduled for a redo next Sunday. Currently, the results at others where there were long delays will stand, even though many people went home in disgust after waiting for hours, masked, in long lines in the hot sun, waiting to cast their ballots.

Plump and Peeled Ceramic Bananas Shape Koji Kasatani’s Evocative Sculptures

Long before the infamous banana sent waves through the art world last year, Koji Kasatani was forming playful sculptures with the yellow produce. From a couple of peels mid-waltz to another fruit flattened into a puddle, the ceramic-and-resin artworks are evocative and humorous. Kasatani shares with Colossal that while the banana is a recurring motif, its purpose is light-hearted and is a form of idiosyncratic expression. At 40 years old, the Japanese artist first started sculpting ceramic pieces after a residency in Florence, where he learned traditional Italian techniques. More
