Broken Statues

I saw this headline about the broken fifteenth century statue at the Met and I thought, "Was it a kid with an umbrella?" Because last week I took my kids to the Met and my son really wanted to brandish his umbrella while going through the Greco Roman rooms, and I was like, "No way is my kid going to be the kid who smashes a 4th cent BCE libation cup!" It was pretty stressful. But stressful in a whole other way than coming up with an explanation for my kids about why the superheroes' costumes in the very silly and child-inappropriate Superheroes exhibit were so scary (to scare the bad guys). Good thing they didn't ask about the nipples.
