Quite impressive.  Frank's picture hung on the wall of the old weight room for many years as he held several lifting records at one time.

Wow..congrats Frank. I think I met his wife and kids at Reunion 2014 as we were viewing the 150th memorabilia case at Skillman. Somehow I do recall reading about him (or was it his brother) being summoned out of the bathroom during halftime of the Lehigh game in 1985 or 86 for the position coaches meeting and he appeared with pants around the ankles! Everyone had a good laugh and if it was the 85 game (I think it was as isnt he an 86 grad?) they made a spirited second half comeback after a moribund first half that just fell short.

For all of two weeks. Bruce Beemer just confirmed by PA Senate as his replacement after the resignation (post conviction!) of Kathleen Kane.

True, but the guy can still call himself "former PA Attorney General"  Laughing

Scratch vs Sette Luna

We had an early dinner of thin-crust pizza Wednesday (John Garrett Day) at Scratch in the Easton Public Market on the way to an evening in Clinton NJ.

Per the name, Scratch's ingredients are very fresh. They get the edge there.
Sette Luna's crust is more traditional and crisp. They score there.

Prices are similar, around $12 to $16.

The places are different, Scratch selling its own beer in glasses, I'm more of a pint guy, and it has bar-style seating. Sette Luna's tables are comfortable. The noise level at both varies but Sette Luna's front room can be very loud. Also Sette Luna has a larger menu.

Both are good.

The Lafayette exhibit at the Grolier on East 60th is impressive. Well done.
The place is surrounded by construction but there is good last-day attendance here today.

Weiss and some tough times at the Met. The NYT article points mainly at the CEO.

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/0...et-museum-financial-troubles.html

The Met is among the 10 greatest manmade attractions in the world. Just IMHO.

From a trustee: “Dan brings a discipline and a businesslike approach."

That hints that the CEO does not.
Weiss is the president and COO. The article says he came in and tried to cut almost 10 percent of a $332 million budget. That's a tall order in the high fixed-costs world of museums and institutions in general.

Another good thin-crust pizza spot that is in the middle of nowhere but near Easton is www.thelittleyork.com about six miles south of Phillipsburg and just north of Milford.
Very cheap. Very good. Good draft beer and while the wine list won't blow you away, if you want a bottle to go with pizza, the reds top out at $23. You aren't paying for fancy decor either.
The only drawback, the many deer on the roads around there. Beware.
If I were coming from the south and had to pick up the tab for a group, this is the place. I found it by accident years ago.
Little York is a few miles west of Route 579 in Hunterdon County.

The Russian icon exhibit at Williams is excellent. Worth a stop or more.
