I found a great quote just now:

"Trying to determine what is going on in the world by reading newspapers is like trying to tell the time by watching the second hand of a clock." - Ben Hecht

So true... How did I find this quote? Well Ben Hecht wrote an autobiography which breifly mentioned the Polish egotist, Imean artist ,who I recently rediscovered, Stanislav Szukalski, which in turn was mentioned in a short personal biography about the artist by Jim Woodring (check the website). I discovered Szukalski a while ago but my memory was recently refreshed by none other than Marshall Vandruff at that increidible artistic anatomy crash course (if it is ever in your area, make sure you take it! Artist or no). Anyway, Szukalski hung out with Ben Hecht when he moved to the States in his teens.

What does this have to do with Lucille Ball as the pope? I have no idea.
