I'm sure everyone's been on pins and needles, waiting for my next entry.

Waiting for Kdo? Jesse McKinley, younger brother of Molly, whom some of my readers may know, writes for the New York Times, and had a piece in the Weekend section on Friday (March 28) about the long-ass lines to get in to the big art shows now on in New York. Art Is Long? So Are the Lines has the intrepid Mr. McKinley break away from his theater beat to cover the waits to see such greats as Da Vinci, Matissse, and Picasso. This weekend was the last for the Da Vinci drawings at the Met.

Clare got up early Saturday morning to try and "beat the lines" and still ended up in a crowd overflowing with old women wielding magnifying glasses in order to get up-close and personal with the drafting techniques of the prototype Renaissance Man. (The show's now gone, ergo no link.)
