  • "The Scream" by Edvard Munch was recently purchased by a private buyer for $119,922,500.00. That's more than 1000 times greater than was quoted in jean-claude's story.
    That 1000 times more?

    1. To me, it gives even more 'suchness' to jean-claude's powerful observations and insights about the screams of courage 'heard' on Cowbird.

    2. And...what a metaphor for yet another display of the 1%.
    .Given I cannot figure out how to do it through 'the system,' I dedicate this story to jean-claude for his powers of observation and after day.
