Merhaba, Bulent -

Interesting sign, not least because the joke only works in English, not Dutch. Nicely done considering the poor light.

About that Nightwatch story; I'd heard that it was cut back to fit the company HQ, not the museum. I'd be greatly disappointed to hear it was the museum's fault, since I think of the Rijksmuseum as one of the best and most thoughtful in Europe. Oh, well.

Carol Jean and I were both shocked and horrified to read the account I repeated in the note. Reagards from the Outer Banks of North Carolina, where we are on vacation,
