Plausible Deniability

From today's New York Times: "The Rockefeller name worked its magic last night at Sotheby’s sale of contemporary art, where a mysterious bearded collector in a skybox outbid five other contenders for Rothko’s “White Center (Yellow, Pink and Lavender on Rose).” The $72.8 million he paid, far above the painting’s $40 million estimate, set records for both the artist and for any contemporary work at auction." I just want you readers to know that I am not the "mysterious bearded collector" from this story. Bearded, yes. Mysterious, not so much. That rich, definitely not. And I have many witnesses who can place me at a tailgate party following the Fairport-Pittsford lacrosse game last night. Blogging is not that lucrative!
