The treatment of him as a stone mason with leather apron and all the signs of vigorous manual labor, is only a suggestion of that tradition of the great sculptor, the well known story of the handling of the marble himself with strong and regular hammer blows " taking off great pieces so that danger seemed to threaten the outlines of the sculpture."

Following Pano's lead, Acropolis has reinvented itself from a Greek "greasy spoon" to a trendy and upscale Elmwood Village destination. Rat enthusiast Robert Sullivan noted that naturalists treat wild rats as anathema, refusing to believe that they deserve any consideration. "It is the very ostracism of the rat, its exclusion from the pantheon of natural wonders, that makes it appealing to me, because it begs the question: who are we to decide what is natural and what is not?"
