It was very educational. Enjoy.</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/30916627?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0&amp;color=b30000" webkitallowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="338" width="601"></iframe></p></p> Mon, 24 Oct 2011 14:00:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/blog/claire-zulkey/2011-10-24/abraham-levitan-funny-ha-ha-talkin-about-good-wet-dumpling-93391
