It was. And she's almost smirking in that picture, I like her.

You need a bucket, a three-legged stool, and warm your hands first!

Possibly the most important relic of our past is the Smithsonian Institution.

For those who aren't aware, an obscure British scientist named James Smithson put his will into a trust and named the US Government as the sole inheritor of his significant money if his nephew had no children. As it happened his nephew had no children.

The Congress at the time happily accepted the money and decided to honor his will. Thus we now have the world's chiefest institute of science, history, and art.

Traditions endure. Simple ideas wear out. Please bear with us during this painful moment in time.

Apparently the same as method acting... but with prostitutes!

Anyone read the book mentioned/excerpted in the article? The shortform from the mag is great (love the mag in general), but my to-read list is already getting long, if the book is just going to be a more in-depth version of this story. If it's good, I'll grab it.

I don't think swapping clothes with a dying prostitute counts as what the thread starter implies.  I hope she visited prostitutes before her role, because hookering is a valid, charitable profession.  In fact, we should all go visit our local prostitutes, assuming they're still working amidst the pandemic.
