Naked Boston Bruins

No one at the Boston Globe can be surprised that this is their most e-mailed story of the day: "Along with non-nude portraits of several hockey players, [Kurt] Kauper's show features an homage to former Bruins center Derek Sanderson, who is painted standing next to his locker with his hockey stick -- and nothing else." (There's also a painting of Bobby Orr in the buff.) Not surprisingly, the Globe also implicitly editorializes that the "realistic" paintings are unfit for public view, since it crops each of the nudes above the waist. (If the Globe was somehow prevented from showing the whole paintings, it should tell us why.) Since neither Sanderson nor Orr posed for the paintings, their genitals stem from Kauper's imagination.
