Bonhams has announced its plans to move to a three-story space on the corner of 57th Street and Madison Avenue in New York. This site formerly housed the Dahesh Museum. The move, as well as the decision to sell their Scottish headquarters in Edinburgh, is part of an effort to raise the Auction house’s profile.

Post-Tribune (IN) August 12, 1989 DRAWING THIS ELECTRONIC VERSION MAY DIFFER SLIGHTLY FROM THE PRINTED VERSION. Voice of the people-letters to the editor I have been getting your paper for years and I enjoy reading a lot of your articles. But lately I am very angry because your articles on abortion don’t say what the dangers are even if the abortion is done by a doctor. I do believe that in some cases abortion should be done, but only if the woman’s life is in danger or if it was rape or incest. But if you look at the facts, you will find that a lot of women use abortion as birth control. articles on abortion

Your paper could do so much by telling the kids about birth control and saying that the school should be telling kids the dangers of AIDS. How many young girls go out and get pregnant just to get away from home? Mothers and fathers, not all but many, just don’t seem to care and many times the kids are left alone to do as they want. in our site articles on abortion

I have heard the same old story, that it is a woman’s body. And this is true, but once she gets married her body becomes part of her husband’s life and he has just as much right to decide if he wants a child. But if the laws are going to say “you married this woman you must support her and give her a home but you can’t stop her from killing your baby,” then why the hell get married?

You have the power to tell the kids the dangers of abortion and the dangers of AIDS.
