reverse art theft/little bit of politics 

I don't often do this kind of ordinary, link-based entry but this story, via Neil Gaiman's blog, about graffiti artist Banksy getting paintings into major New York galleries by the simple method of taking them in and gluing them to the walls is too good not to share.

In other, less jolly, news (again via Mr Gaiman): further evidence that the United States of America is in danger of becoming even more buggered than it already is. "Freedom is a dangerous thing," says Republican, Dennis Baxley in defence of his proposed bill to, essentially, limit the freedom of speech of college professors. Is it just me or is it getting so the Constitution of the United States is becoming more and more like the one on the barn wall in Animal Farm? The pigs keep changing the bits they don't like.
