My Painting is Bigger Than Your Painting, Ha, Ha!

What a pathetic excuse for a man must be the specimen who couldn’t find a better use for $450.3 million than this:

After 19 minutes of dueling, with four bidders on the telephone and one in the room, Leonardo da Vinci’s “Salvator Mundi” sold on Wednesday night for $450.3 million with fees, shattering the high for any work of art sold at auction. It far surpassed Picasso’s “Women of Algiers,” which fetched $179.4 million at Christie’s in May 2015. The buyer was not immediately disclosed.

What a joke! Will humans EVER get over the need to one-up? It's so primitive.

This is the kind of story that highlights the need in this country for an excess wealth tax.

Yours very crankily,
