Re: Restoration News



Back during my good ol' days at the Smithsonian, I used to sneak peeks at
Jay's works in progress. He very kindly ignored my impertinence and let me
poke my nose through the plastic drop-cloths. Unveilings of the finished
products always were times for public celebrations, whilst I smuggly knew
that I was among the very few who had the least inkling of the great labor,
attention, knowledge, skill, and talent that went into creating such
awesomely wonderful murals.
