Art & Politics

OK, I can't quite resist the occasional lapse into political commentary.

In several blogs and other near occasions of word, I've seen comments about the recent stories of Koran desecration that mention the controversy over Andres Serrano's infamous artwork "Piss Christ." None has seemed to twig to the actual humor content of the piece.

No, it has little to do with desecrating anything. Serrano says that the thing is a crucifix in a vial of urine. However, he offers no evidence of that, so the outraged (and all other) viewers of the work , if they think it's what he says it is, have to take it on faith.
