A big thanks to my readers who insisted that kids deserved the truth–got quite a nice letter from the teacher of the fourth-grade class, who thanked me for not watering it down, and dug up a picture of “Saturn Devouring His Children” to show those members of the class who wanted to see it. Since I think she’s reading this blog, I’ll say it again–my readers are often smarter than I am (definitely when it comes to kids!) so they deserve the lion’s share of the credit on that one.
And hey, somewhere there’s a fourth grade class who’s been exposed to Goya because of us, and I’m sure that’s something we can all feel a little smug about. *grin*
