One more time: GROSS!

I neglected to mention earlier that Sadie and I made it to the Philadelphia Museum of Art a couple of weekends ago while she was in town to see the newly-restored, deliciously dark Eakins painting "The Gross Clinic". In the name of laziness, I will forward you on to this link for a greater and more in-depth story of the painting... but first, let me just say that I am proud of Philly for pulling the funds together to keep the painting in the city, instead of selling it off to some far-flung place... YAY. So, without further ado: Gross!
