The raison d'etre is what would have been the 80th birthday for disavowed Burgher Andy Warhol. Some funny cultural nuances in the article... the author describes the grave as being located in a bland Pittsburgh suburb (otherwise known as Bethel Park). Them is fighting words. The Warhol grave overlooks a tram? (that would be the T, who knew we were so Euro) and he confuses CMU and Pitt when he describes the former Carnegie Tech as being dominated by a scary, Orwellian skyscraper, 535ft high and built in the Gothic revival style. (that I take has to be Pitt's Cathedral of Learning... which I do have to say reminds me a bit of Mosow State University for those who have seen it.) and finally he describes local Byzantine Catholics as a sect that uses icons in their worship. Sect? Icons? Are there no Orthodox Christians in the UK?
Finally, where are the obligatory local stories on the mysterious annual visitor to the Warhol grave site. Oh wait, that's the anniversary of his death, not his birthday.
