"To paraphrase the eminent metaphysician L.P. Berra, an event has not concluded until all activity associated with that event has ceased."

One thing that remains unchanged after a week away at the beach: the Friends of the Barnes are still battling. Philadelphia Inquirer art critic Edward Sozanski sums up the state of play: "all that the Friends have left in what I expect will be a continuing guerrilla campaign is the moral argument."

Lee Rosenbaum cheers him on, and says: "I admire [the Friends'] fighting spirit. But I think they're going to be flattened by that steamroller."
