    (Looks like it predates Goya. And I missed it when I spent a morning there in September, pity.)

  2. I haven't made it pithy yet, but in my hindbrain it crosses Pericles of Athens with the last couplet of The Second Coming:

    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

  3. Jeff Sessions' proposed replacement for "Lady Justice" makes AG John Ashcroft's move to cover the topless statue seem pretty tame.
