Bogus Andy:? An unknown silkscreen print supposedly by late Pittsburgh-born artist Andy Warhol goes on the auction block on Sept. 2 at a Columbia County gallery. But Tom Sokolowski says the unsigned print — titled “Of Thee I Sing — Nico” — doesn't look like a Warhol. And if anyone knows, he would know. Unless authenticated, this print should be pulled from the auction or sold as a non-Warhol work.

Time warp: The Toledo, Ohio, Block Bugler editorializes that Detroit's bankruptcy somehow is a clarion call for “a new urban agenda,” one that “can be a prescription for national prosperity.” But as the Allegheny Institute for Public Policy reminds, “Calling for a new urban agenda is just a dreamed up politically correct scheme to avoid dealing with disasters created by earlier statist schemes.”

It's that time again: Students soon will be heading back to school. Some kids are cringing. Many parents are rejoicing. And we would be remiss if we did not caution drivers to be alert for kids of all ages being out and about, especially in the early morning and again in the afternoon. So, here's the drill: Obey the crossing guards, stop for buses with flashing red lights and expect that kid to dart out from between two parked cars. But here's the very best tip we can think of for motorists — slow down.
