Everyone's a critic

You've been wondering how much of Homeland Security's energy is spent on art criticism, haven't you?

Fake passports created as part of an Austrian artist's exhibit have been confiscated by U.S. government authorities, Ohio museum officials said Tuesday.

You can get a State of Sabotage passport online for 35 dollars here.

I commented on this story too. While I find the situation mostly funny I think it says volumes about our messed up priorities in this country. I created a TerrArt Alert System in response. I wouldn't be surprised if the homeland security department starts using it.

I'm re-reading Catch 22 right now. There's a bit of lit that's gotta be high on the list for a TerrArt alert! I guess that'd be the TerrLit alert... Especially of note, the Loyalty Oath section.

I admit that I didn't know who Chris Ofili was by name. Then I Googled: oh, yeah, the elephant poop Madonna! Of course!

That's a great idea, a TerrLit Alert system. We would have to include the late Hunter S. Thompson on the list.
