Eakins, The Gross Clinic- Needs Post Op Care

The Gross Clinic has been saved from the table but there is some more care that needs to be given. The fund is only partially raised and more donations will be needed to end this operation. In today's Inky there is great reporting by Stephan Salisbury, Inquirer Culture Writer who has held the spotlight on the effort to save The Gross Clinic. He and Edward J. Sozanski, Inquirer Art Critic should get a prize for their coverage of this story. I would know very little about what happened if this story hadn't been covered with such depth.

Sylvester Stallone, made a Philly comeback story that many would dismiss as pugilistic junk. The Rocky fight shares the same virtue as the fight to keep The Gross Clinic. Art comes in all forms.

The Keep Eakins Fund still needs help so please give what you can.

Merry Christmas, there really is a Santa!
