This kid is Very proud of his work. Reminds me of the woman who "Restored" the deteriorating Fresco of Jesus. To quote her "We saw that everything was falling down and we fixed it,". The Fresco of Jesus titled "Behold, the Man" was Retitled "Behold, the Monkey" by those who witnessed the woman's "Repair Work". You be the judge:

Lucious

Glidden Company announced today, the recall of thousands of gallons of their most popular white latex paint. It appears the 1 gallon cans can spontaneously explode for no apparent reason.

Spring/Summer repeats, and re-runs, just like on TV., as per usual, this time of the year.

Has Kaplan just gotten lazy, or has he lost interest, or else; - Are there are no NEW subject photos to offer us.

Then, again, he may be on vacation, with only his subordinates to offer us up the weekly (on file) diatribe that we all enjoy, as well as encompass.

Hope to hear from you again soon, Kaplan - Good Luck, and Enjoy! - Loupy.
