No Right Turn pointed me to this salutary tale of freedom of expression in the USA - what happens when a gallery in San Francisco's North Beach, the home of the Beats, and where Lawrence Ferlinghetti of City Lights fame still hangs out, puts up a painting of US soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners.

If it's like that there, what the hell's it like in the rest of the country?

Apparently, there is a new theory that the gallery owner faked the entire incident.
She has a history of similar behavior.
I'll look for a link and stop back. Good blog, by the way.
