Who is Ted Kincaid?

Ted Kincaid is an artist known for working primarily with photo-based imagery. He was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1966, and received a B.F.A. from Texas Tech University and an M.F.A. from the University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY. Currently, Kincaid lives and works in Dallas, TX and is represented by galleries in Texas, Louisiana, Illinois, New York, and Georgia. In the mid-1990's, Kincaid switched from traditional camera photography to photographing images he created on his computer and continues to explore the interpenetration between painting and photography. He is one of several artists creating a new painting style informed by photo-imagery and a new photography informed by painting.

Ted Kincaid has exhibited extensively in his career and received considerable critical attention for his photographically based work. He has been reviewed in ARTFORUM, Art on Paper, Artlies and ARTPAPER and is included in the permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Museum of Fine Arts in San Antonio, the Neiman Marcus Collection, American Airlines, the Belo Corporation, Reader's Digest Corporate Collection, the City of Seattle, Washington, the U.S. State Department, Microsoft Corporation and the Human Rights Campaign Headquarters in Washington, DC.

To those who are unfamiliar with Kincaid's artwork, it first seems to defy categorization. "The easiest way to explain it," he confides, "is that I take photographs of things that do not actually exist. The images that I photograph are ones that I draw or paint using various computer and digital techniques." Fascinated as a child by television programs featuring "actual" photographs of ghosts, UFOs and Bigfoot, Kincaid fabricates lush, blurry images that hover before the viewer's eyes, moving and morphing the longer they are observed.

Why is 'Ted' short for 'Edward'?

It's best to understand this as part of a much wider practice of "rhyming nicknames".

There was a trend of creating rhyming nicknames (arbitrarily changing the first letter) in the 13th and 14th centuries. That's where we get all these surprising forms like Dick (and Hick!) from Richard, Polly from Molly (for Mary), Bob, Dob and Hob from Rob (from Robert), Bill from Will (from William); and Hodge from Roger.

For more on rhyming nicknames, click on the links below:

In some cases the substituted letter has some relationship to the original. For example, the "P" of "Polly" and "Peggy" is phonetically akin to the "M" of "Molly" and "Maggie", etc. (Just try saying "Molly" as if you had a cold!) But in many cases the substitution is arbitrary. (Perhaps, though, there were favorite letters to use -- note all the uses of B,D and H as substitutes for men's name in the list above.)

For other forms of "letter swapping" to create nicknames, and a variety of other methods by which English nicknames developed see:geocities.com - (To go directly to the website click on the link below:)

Apparently ONE impetus for all this letter swapping was a dislike among the native English for the harsh Norman French "r". (Note how many nicknames made substations for r's -- not only at the beginning of words [Richard, Robert], but in the middle of them -- Mary > Molly, Sarah > Sally/Sadie, Dorothy > Dolly; Harold/Harry > Hal).

Another reason for rhyming nicknames was the limited number of different personal names at the time. Changing the first letter was one way of distinguishing people who had the same given name. (Consider especially the case of a parent and child with the same first name. Even today it is not unusual for the child to be called by a different nickname to distinguish them from their parent.)

Given this practice of letter-swapping (especially at the *beginning* of a name), it is not too surprising that the 'Ed' name (Edward, Edgar, Edwin) would end up using a nickname with various arbitrary consonants at the beginning, not only creating "Ned", but borrowing the pre-existing nickname "Ted" (for Theodore).

How did the Kennedy family become rich?

The Kennedy family became rich because they were bootleggers during the time of prohibition. After the government begged them to stop they said that if alchol ever did become legal they wanted a quarter (25 cents) for every bottle containg alchol ever sold.

Is Ted Kennedy more liberal than Robert Kennedy?

There are two meanings of "liberal". The original meaning was supportive of individual liberty, and still tends to be the dominant sense outside of America. In America, "liberal" has come most often to refer to a sort of social democratism (mild socialism).

Before and during the Kennedy Administration, John and Robert were pragmatic technocrats. John was in alliance with Joseph McCarthy even as McCarthy recklessly accused people of being Soviet agents and sympathizers, and Robert worked on McCarthy's staff. John was elected to the Presidency by playing upon American fears of the Soviet Union. John told the nation that the Republicans had allowed a "missile gap" to develop, and that more active government measures were needed so that the Soviets would not outperform America economically and scientifically.

One of the reforms of the Kennedy Administration was to change the structure of the income tax, reducing marginal rates to improve incentives. (This proved very effective.) The Kennedy Administration was slow to defend racial equality and presented budgets that spent twice as much on the military as on domestic programmes. Meanwhile, with Robert as Attorney General, it routinely violated the Bill of Rights to gather evidence.

After the assassination of President John F Kennedy, Robert began to move politically to the left. He advocated aggressive socialistic programmes to combat poverty, became more supportive of civil rights, and opposed the escalation of American involvement in the Viet-Nam War. Some saw this as opportunistic, others as part of a sincere evolution begun with his brother's death; many people didn't think of it at all, swept-up in the mythology being spun around John F. Kennedy.

One can only guess what Robert would have done had he been elected President.

Edward Moore Kennedy has been reluctant to confront some of the actions of John and Robert, but he has denounced illegal search-and-seizure by later administrations. He has positioned himself as not merely in favor of racial and sexual equality, but of "affirmative action" (discrimination to off-set the effects of past discrimination). He was at one time the foremost advocate of socializing health-care delivery in the United States. So, in some respects, he seems more concerned with liberty than were his brothers; and, in other respects, he has been more socialistic.

He has become somewhat more quiescent in later years, as he has been repeatedly embroiled in personal scandal, as America has moved generally away from liberalism (in both senses of the word), and as he has grown old.
It is of Irish and Gaelic origin, and its meaning is helmet head or ugly head; one who had an ugly head .

Stamp Collecting (Philately)

Ted Kennedy

What is the value of a Kennedy postage stamp?

There are quite a number of postage stamps that feature John F. Kennedy. You will need to identify the stamp using a catalog. This may involve learning about perforations, watermarks and colors as well as condition. The catalog will provide a value. The value is what a collector could expect to pay for a stamp in fine/very fine condition. If selling, most cases you would be lucky to get 75% of the catalog, unless it is very valuable, then an auction would be worth looking into. The most common American catalog for identification is Scott's. Others are Stanley Gibbons, Minkus and even the US Postal Service Catalog of stamps.

Is Ted Kennedy going to retire soon?

As far as I know he hasn't mentioned retirement, so we can only hope that he will and the sooner the better. Be nice if a bunch of the others in Congress would retire with him. I hope so because the folks in Massachusetts aren't going to stop voting for him. Heck, they made Dukakis their Governor nothing else needs to be said. The sad fact is they will just replace him for another like him. He died August 26, 2009, furthermore, dying in office and retiring himself automatically.

Is being denied entry into the US the same as being deported in terms of future entry?

No. Deportation means you have been captured and moved back to your home country. Denial means you've never entered. You have a better chance of entering the country after a denial than if you've been deported.
