i was talking to a teacher in the building here about field trips and recanted one i was on with a group from the YMCA several years back .. as a youth worker, i had a group of kids up in the chinese section when i heard a dull thud and kids running .. the damned kids knocked over a ming dynasty sculpture that threw security, the curator and others into a dazed glaze .. it was the worst, unpublicized accident in the museum's history and i was there to witness it .. as it happened, some boy pushed a girl as a joke into the pedestaled piece and created the nightmare .. the girl got off with a mere week of community service .. i'll never forget that room and that piece .. cheers.

recently, my miles boy threw out an old newspaper on the floor tucked away in a cabinet downstairs .. as i pulled it up, i forgot all about a trove of 'black panther' papers my father-in-law acquired over the years .. some very nice graphic designing going on there in the late 60's to get the panther message to the masses in the most eloquent way possible .. carry on ..
