Case in point, their recent article on "parallelism" & what it says 
about the dog mimicking the woman's posture ... and the "cat":
Yeah - that was a good read!  (Hodler, btw, is one of my favorite painters.)

Well I've been doing a lot of that over the years.. didn't think about 
it being called "parallelism"

This was my money maker back in 1981 when I got an "award of merit" in 
the KINSA ..  $100

There are a lot of Erwitts that fall into the category as well.
