Liberté


One of the memorable things we did when in London this past summer was to visit Banksy - The Unauthorized Exibit at Sotheby's.  My son, the art student, turned us on to his work.

Wikipedia succinctly describes Banksy's work, "His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinct stenciling technique. His works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world."

I find it quite moving that so many people marched today to show that we are not going to take being harrassed and terrorized by violent people. It is great to see you posting satirical cartoons that express freedom of speech at a time when we need it most!
