If You are Going to Criticize Popular and/or Elite Culture...:

you should at least get your facts straight:

No so today. Our elite culture treats symbols of authority with mockery. Robert Mapplethorpe put crosses in jars of urine, and the philistines who read the New Yorker and sent money to the ACLU line up to defend his freedom of expression. Not, mind you, his mere and uncontested right to put crosses in piss, but his right to federal funding, to space in art museums, to celebration and acclaim as a great, liberating artistic genius.

For those who don't know, the writer confuses Robert Mapplethorpe with Andres Serrano.
