How (or why) would that make you shallow?

The Art of Politics

One of the big stories in the news today is that President Bush revealed that there was allegedly a terrorist plot to fly a airplane into a tall building in Los Angeles in 2002 that was foiled by counter-terrorism efforts. I must admit, I find the timing of this announcement most very suspicious, pa...

would people's reaction to it be any different if I told you that the painting was made for a rock album cover?
No. At least not my reaction. But then, I haven't described any reaction, so that's probably not fair.

My first thought is that the folks at RIM are fools.

My second thought is less charitable.

My third thought is that we need to get Ellienor in here to express her opinion, since this is (I think) her field.

Whistler, "Grimmy"? Really? That is too funny. Strangely enough, my interest in Grimshaw was sparked by the fact that there are repeated references to him in the books of one of my favorite pulp fiction (if that is the right term) authors - Jack Higgins. In the book that I just finished, D...

I'm sorry to keep starting threads. I feel like a thread hog. That's the last thing you should apologize for, Ethel. The threads you have started have sparked some really wonderful discussions. I want to encourage you -- and everyone -- to never be shy about starting new threads. New threads are th...

Whistler, any thoughts about Whistler's relationship with Atkinson Grimshaw (whose noctural paintings, like the one above, I like very much)?

If there is interest in continuing the discussion about the discussion about the relationship between the Old Testament and the New Testament, now would be the time to split that discussion off, before too many posts get mixed between that subject and the actuall topic of this thread (like Hobby's l...

Very well said, Wilma. I feel like I don't have to say anything in this thread because you are already saying it better then I could. :) This is neither the time nor the place for this discussion, but I'm always stunned when somebody who embraces the New Testament claims that the Old Testament has n...

I wish these defenses were true in the case of Islam, as they are regarding other faiths. But increasingly I fear that violent, intolerant Islam is the "real" Islam, with the "aberrant" Muslims being those who think and behave as civilized modern people. I would be delighted to ...

I suppose I should post a little more detail about my opinion on the original subject, beyond "utter idiots and utter-er idiots." The Bush administration offered support Friday to protesters angry over caricatures of the prophet Muhammad published in Europe, saying of the cartoons, "W...

Its not offensive to me, Hobby; I think its complimentary (and accurate, at least to some extent). I certainly don't have any objections to using humor to help tell some aspect of the story of the holocaust. But neither the Anne Frank cartoon nor Alatar's hypothetical example do that, in my opinion.

What if I drew a cartoon of Fat people queueing up to enroll at "Auschwitz - The Health Spa" and coming out gaunt. Would that be satirical or offensive? I can guarantee that very close to 100% of people who lost family members at Auschwitz (or Oświęcim, as it is properly called in Polish)...
