Pablo Picasso’s famous 1937 painting “Guernica” was inspired by a fascist bombing of that Spanish City during the Spanish Civil War. As the story has been recounted since, during World War II, Picasso was living in occupied Paris and was asked by a Nazi officer, referring to a photograph of the painting, “Did you do this?”; Picasso’s reply was the famed “No, you did”, referring to the fascists’ role in the original bombing.

The painting was not allowed to be exhibited in Spain itself, on Picasso’s insistence, until Spain was a republic; it did not receive exhibit in that country until 1981, after it became a constitutional monarchy.

    GoodluckAimee! Hopeyouwinagain!

  2. Colin put the DDs to great use!
    Congrats Colin!
    I think I’m going to enjoy tonight’s game, which is something I’ve not been able to say too much lately.

  3. This seemed like a good time for Lindsey to bet zero on the Final. Aimee couldn’t catch her. Lindsey needed Colin to miss, and he was almost certainly going to bet enough to cover anything she could get to, which would have put him below her number if he missed. We see it a lot, though, and I guess I’ll just never understand it.
