Here's a story that represents the first - and perhaps last - time that I've used the phrase "vagina dentata" on the front of the Sunday A & E section.

Hopefully, you'll keep reading.

Last month, Scott Black, an art collector who is also an overseer at the Museum of Fine Arts, let me watch as he visited Christie's Auction House so I could get a sense of how he buys art. Why now? An exhibition featuring his collection is on display at the MFA.

Panache did an interview with Black.
