Recent "madonna" cover of "New Yorker"
Maybe it's allegorical, remember that painting, with the strange signature, x-rayed it revealed that, almost finished when the artist died, it was finished by the artist's daughter, it's authenticity, arguably a percentage, researched at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, on Long Island in New York where Irving Berlin wrote "Yip yip Yaphank" for Camp Upton in WWI (once with no weapons, in trenches with brooms, a site visited today where an atom smasher was to go) and later nearby German Youth camped in the 1930's? Peter Meyer or Myer researched it. The Jackson Pollack /Krasner place is held by Stony Brook University in trust and they also run the Lab, taking over from the Dept. of Energy. In summary, the test tube makes it about science not religion. Posted by: George Myers | May 15, 2005 02:01 PM I was once in an after-school supervised chemistry lab in high school for extra credit, a friend was researching esters. As I watched him shake a test tube over a Bunsen burner, without goggles, it almost exploded, sending the contents, a mixture of glycerin and nitric acid across the room where part of it burned a hole in my synthetic fabric ski jacket. Some went near or in my friend John's eye, and I took him to the empty nurse's office to wash out his eye. Apparently, he was just following the printed instructions. Filled the lab with smoke and taught the recent grad, student teaching assistant, a lesson I hope.
