Why is art history important?

It is the visual history of a culture. That is enough.

AND IT BEATS THE HECK OUT OF THE IDEA THAT ELVIS IS STILL ALIVE AND WILL
APPEAR IN DRAG ON THE JERRY SPRINGER SHOW.

That unfortunately is the level your students are working at
when they come to school. Just ask a class how many watched
it this week. It will make you sick at heart.

It has been a long day. I just saw "Life is Beautiful".
I have not been so moved in a long time. You will be too.
Yes, it has sub titles. You must see it before it leaves town and is
replaced by "Elsa, She-wolf of the SS" or something of similar dubious
quality.
