Re: [BKARTS] Patriot act takes an artist (good!)



I love politics and art, but this email (below) has gone too far.
And I contend that oftentimes one who is very knowledgeable about a
particular subject has a right to be 'positive'  and that is not a
sign of a lazy mind.  Accusing someone of not knowing art if it
jumped up and bit 'your' ass is a very lazy way of giving positive
criticism.
Bruce, I'm disappointed in your responses.



It's clear that nothing anyone could say, or any "facts" presented
would change your view.  I have no idea of your political affliation
(nor do I wish to know) but your exposition of "facts" smacks of
typical neo-con dogma-designed to instill "fear" and maintain
"power".
     Being so positive about one's own opinions is the sign of a
lazy mind and besides, my guess is you wouldn't know "art" if it
jumped up and bit your ass.
