‘Tis the season of joy and hypertension. That’s right. It’s Christmess. That magical time of year when museums scurry about trying to boost their attendance and their bottom line as much as they can before the new fiscal year (we have a suggestion for that by the way).

UPDATE: The Jones Journal mystery has been solved! And no one’s henchmen had to die to figure it out.
