Jerry Saltz’s Open Letter to the Republicans of the 111th Congress -- Vulture

Speaking up for the arts!
Dear Messrs. Kantor and Boehner:

Given your censoring of David Wojnarowicz’s video of ants crawling on a plastic crucifix with a wooden human figure meant to represent Jesus Christ, a literary character penned by numerous authors over several hundred years and now worshiped as God, and your threatening the Smithsonian’s funding if it did not comply with your wishes, I would like you to know about a similar threat to decency.
