THE TAR TAR PITS
A PAGE OUT OF THE MUSEUM?
By Louis Elovitz
" Ah Whale", said the Sole.
And the Whale responded,
well, you know the rest...
but what is that " coloured " asphalt ?
The Art District goes
Pedestrian with these
What am I talking about?... "whales, colOUred"
well, when I was growing up here in NOHO my
best friend Richard Sapiro's father, Will,
would joke around with us...
He was from Liverpool, England
and he thought it was SO FUNNY
that us youngin's did not get his joke...
The Sole swims past the Whale and says,
"AH, WHALE", and the
Whale responds, "AH SOLE"...
we never got it, and he laughed away.
ALSO Richard Sapiro for many years
has been a Volunteer Paleontologist
at the La Brea Tar Pits
( La Brea means The Tar, the tar tar pits )
at the Page Museum, thus
MY TITLES above, there Whew! }
