The naked truth
Back in this post, I noted meeting David Lee Morgan, a local sports writer and author of a number of books including LeBron James: The Rise of a Star. David and I were seated next to each other for a book fair back in April. The day-long event might have dragged, but we ended up laughing our heads off.
I quickly learned David is far from a one-dimensional man. Case in point: he participated in Spencer Tunick's 2004 installation here in Cleveland and wrote about the experience for the Akron Beacon Journal.
When I first blogged about David, I was unable to find his writings about the Tunick event online. He has since forwarded me his article with permission to post it, which some readers had asked about. Here are links to high resolution copies with more photos and complete text:

I just love the picture above taken by Bob DeMay for the Journal, which accompanied David's article. Dig the expressions on everyone's faces. They're just regular guys, only naked, which according to David, was pretty much the way it was that day. After a while, he told me, people pretty much forget about being naked.
Hm. Maybe we should all go buff right now.
