“A powerful federal arts commission is urging that the sculpture of Martin Luther King Jr. proposed for a memorial on the Tidal Basin be reworked because it is too “confrontational” and reminiscent of political art in totalitarian states.”
Yes, that statue is truly frightening. Frankly, given the state of our nation, I think he has the right to look stern if he wants. What do they want him to be doing? (a soft shoe maybe). I presume they want a smile plastered on his face, you know, so he doesn’t look so mean.
Ah, much better.
