irrelevant remarks here

Beep Beep Gallery won the readers' best new gallery award in the Atlanta Creative Loafing.

I had always thought of Beep Beep's name in terms of the Roadrunner cartoon, but just now I heard a 50th anniversary of Sputnik broadcast on NPR in which a commentator was recalling hearing NBC News on Oct 4 1957, "The announcer said, 'And now you will hear the sound that will forevermore divide the past from the future,'and then you heard 'beep beep beep beep.'"
