Hurrying past beauty, again

Last year, I posted a link to a story about a world-famous violinist who performed icognito in one of Washington DC's subway stations. It was amazing to watch as people ignored the musician, atleast for the most part. Well, the journalist to set up this experiment was honored with a Pulitzer Prize for his originality, but there's a kicker....unbeknownst to him his idea wasn't at all original. Turns out the same experiment was done in the 30's!
