      I'm really not that arrogant (the camera oft times lies). But I do look like Hitler Youth organizer with that haircut.

      I was in Korea in 1952 and Stu was in Japan. We came back raving about how artists are treated (with respect) in Japan and Kirsten went to see for himself. His mind never came back.

      At one time, Henry Roth was the most famous newspaper artist in New York City. He had a collection of full page drawings -- beautiful society ladies (advertisers' wives) were his speciality.

      Ray, it looks like you just came from a break under the globe. ;~)

      Nope -- that photo was from the late-50s. Some wags partook of Unidentified Vegetable Matter starting in the late-60s (during The Troubles).

      I don't remember Roth.
      Would love to see samples.

      What a great photo.

      Don't forget to say that your shirt was pink and gray checks.
