Dear Carol...

Well, first of all, you'd have to go back a few years to find any of "his" work. From the bio on his website (Chihuly.com): "Dale Chihuly is most frequently lauded for revolutionizing the studio glass movement...to encompass the notion of collaborative teams and a division of labor within the creative process." In other words, for the last couple of decades, Mr.Chihuly has been a finger-painter with a talented staff of people for whom intellectual theft is not a problem. The nearly identical nature of every one of his works has not kept every museum across the globe from purchasing one of each. Hope this helps.

Hey guys, I just added an event to the calendar and got to wondering if you are using Plone for your website? I just started a plone site for Kansas Public Radio and am new to it, but your site looks and acts like a plone site. Just wondering.

Dear Amy...

We didn't know what the hell you were talking about, so we asked Adrian Holovaty, our lead programmer. He had this to say: "Thanks for the note. Nope, no Plone here. We have our won publshing system built in-house," which is nice person talk for "Plone is for the weak and molusk-like. Holovaty is mighty. Bow before the Holovaty-like greatness of Holovaty. Your Plone sickens me. I would not Plone with your doughy and inefficient finers. Ploner"
