"And, Hundreds of Nude Women on Display. Next at Eleven."

This was actually the commercial lead-in for the news the other day.

It was a story about some artist (coughcoughpervertcoughcough) in New York City who amassed all these naked women in Grand Central Station to take their picture. He did not pay them, but, on the upside for everybody, I was not present.

As always, I am left with many questions: 1) You know what, no I'm not. Nothing surprises me anymore. As my lawyer friend Flip (not Flipper my Rollerblading partner-- totally different hair, totally different genders) said last night, "When you can't trust the heroin dealers anymore, who can you trust?"
