ARLES, France -- In this Provencal city of Roman ruins, the schizoid artist Vincent van Gogh, probably whacked out on absinthe, went bonkers and sliced off his ear. He presented it to a local prostitute, the story goes. In a majestic amphitheater the Romans built, Les Arenes Romaines, gladiators whacked each other to eternity and Christians were fed to lions and other beasts.
