|the Corner Stone|
A conservator from the Boston Museum of Fine Arts carefully chiseled at the stone, removing pieces bit by bit until the box was freed. It took several hours, apparently.

New Subject: Saturday, 12/13/14 (!) is the Army Navy Game. Traditionally a great rivalry between two of our warfighter institutions. The really exciting news about this is that it will be played at the Ravens' Stadium in Baltimore . . . and your humble scribe will be in attendance! Hopefully, the Midshipmen will continue their brilliant record of 12 wins in a row over the Cadets of West Point !
Either way, it will be a wonderful spectacle! And a huge thanks to my son, Josh, for scoring the tix!
"Go NAVY, beat Army!" long time sentiment of Squids and Marines
