^Someone ate the $120,000 banana at Art Basel. Yes, really<
120K-BANANA:MI _ Someone ate a really expensive snack at Art Basel Saturday afternoon _ to the tune of $120,000.
For one banana.
By now you have probably heard of the now world-famous banana duct-taped to Emmanuel Perrotin’s outer gallery wall at Art Basel Miami Beach. The piece that sold to an art collector for $120,000.
The $120,000 banana _ a real, rather ripe and edible one _ is the work of Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan and titled “Comedian.” The work comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, and owners are told that they can replace the banana, as needed.
Instructions on how to replace the banana are not included.
But New York-based performance artist David Datuna ate the banana in front of a convention center full of art lovers, according to gallery representatives.

^Americans say foreign policy knowledge is vital, still flunk quiz<

^Los Angeles Times: We’ve seen enough. Trump should be impeached<
The Los Angeles Times’ editorial board was a reluctant convert to the impeachment cause. We worried that impeaching Trump on essentially a party-line vote would be divisive. It is also highly likely that Trump would be _ will be _ acquitted by the Republican-controlled Senate, and that, rightly or wrongly, he would point to that in his reelection campaign as exoneration.
But those concerns must yield to the overwhelming evidence that Trump perverted U.S. foreign policy for his own political gain. That sort of misconduct is outrageous and corrosive of democracy. It can’t be ignored by the House, and it merits a full trial by the Senate on whether to remove him from office.
