Smiles and tears

Two pithy stories today.

One brought smiles:
A German art expert was fooled into believing a painting done by a chimpanzee was the work of a master.
And the other, tears:
Mike Stokely didn't die for a just cause, he died for a lot of just causes, including the ones I set out above. I wish I were fit to tie his shoe laces but I am fortunate enough to have a son who believed in God, family, duty, honor and country and who certainly turned out to be the better of the two of us.
