    Shortly after Mozart stopped composing he spent some time decomposing.
    Now he's doing neither.

    If it's the first time I learn of it, to me it's news. :)

    Uh, yes, and here's something even worse (claps hands to face in
    horror!): the pics in question were most likely seen and enjoyed by
    (gasp!) thousands of people even before they were available on line!

    Free hint: The idea that anything older than 6 months automatically
    lacks value is going to come as a shock to both the heirs of Ansel
    Adams and the directors of museums everywhere. So will the twin
    concepts that everyone must have already seen anything that's
    available on the net, and that nothing is worth looking at twice.

    (Me? Sarcastic? Yeah, right.)

    Indeed. Many.

    One of them gives me new meaning to the term, "carrying the pigskin".....

    Even more intriguing, was the unauthorized use of U.S. troops, by
    the British. The latter were quite desperate to keep Russia in the
    war (as that country's vast throngs of illiterate peasants, were
    the world's primary source of "cannon fodder"). Therefore, Britain
    wanted to defeat the Bolsheviks and restore Czarist rule.

    Those hapless American soldiers were pawns of evil machinations;
    the self-serving plans of the British failed, at any rate.
