In the News....

From the June 23rd edition of AM New York:

Chimp outsells Warhol

Monkey business proved to be lucrative this week when paintings by Congo the chipmanzee sold at auction for more than $25,000. The three abstract tempera paintings were auctioned at Bohams of London alongside works by impressionist master Renoir and pop art provacateur Andy Warhol. An American bidder named Howard Hong purshcesd the lot of paintings for $26,352.


Is this the start of a downfall of the art world? Just wondering.



MSNBC, via an Associated Press report, points out that the Chicago White Sox are the best team in Major League Baseball. Yet, the White Sox lack the attendance in comparison to the Chicago Cubs. This may not seem funny until you realize that the Chicago Cubs are playing near 500 baseball and have drawn 1,354,376 fans so far this season while the White Sox have drawn 885,906 fans this year.

Something in Chicago doesn't make sense with the city's baseball fans.

Just another weird day of observations in the news.
