    Background: THE MONA LISA PAINTING WAS FINALLY REMOVED FROM HER ARMORED CRATE YESTERDAY, 21 DEC AND UNVEILED FOR THE PRESS AT WASHINGTON, D.C.'S NATIONAL ART GALLERY. THE OFFICIAL UNVEILING AND EXHIBIT WILL COME JANUARY 8TH, BUT YESTERDAY'S CEREMONY IN THE NATIONAL GALLERY VAULTS PLAYED TO A FULL HOUSE OF PHOTOGRAPHERS, CAMERAMEN, AND SEVERAL VARIETIES OF THE PEN, PENCIL AND TYPEWRITER PRESS.

    ACTUALLY, IT WAS THE FIRST DIRECT EVIDENCE ANYONE HAD THAT THE WELL-GUARDED, WELL-INSULATED CRATE WHICH TRAVELLED FROM FRANCE IN A FIRST CLASS CABIN AND FROM NEW YORK CITY IN AN AIR CONDITIONED TRUCK CONTAINED THE MONA LISA CANVAS. THE PRESS SHOWING DISPELLED ANY DOUBTS ON THAT QUESTION.

    THERE WERE APPROPRIATE PLATITUDE MADE ABOUT THE FAMOUS PAINTING. THE PICTURES WERE TAKEN. THE ART EXPERTS FURROWED THEIR RESPECTIVE BROWS JUDICIOUSLY AND THE 450-YEAR-OLD BEAUTY CONTINUED TO GRIN JUST AS SHE ALWAYS HAS SINCE LEONARDO DA VINCI FIRST PUT HER ON CANVAS.
