Forget the Alex Matter situation for a moment.

Turn to Teri Horton, the retired truck driver who is at the center of another Jackson Pollock controversy. Horton bought a picture at a flea market back in the 1990s for $5. Then somebody told her it was a Pollock.

Her response created the title of the excellent recent documentary, "WHO THE $#%& IS JACKSON POLLOCK?"

The breaking news is that the Fine Art Registry now has a report up on its site refuting the fingerprint work done by Peter Paul Biro.

Also, here's a story about a splatter painter who thinks he may have done the Horton picture.
