On Being Grateful to be American

From detained Chinese artist Ai Weiwei's 1995 - 2003 series Study of Perspective.

Whenever I feel my government has let me down or somehow conspired to make my life miserable, I consider the fact that I am still allowed to get on the street and flip off the Fed Board of Governors on good old 20th and Constitution.

Ai Weiwei doesn't have that sort of luxury.

(Note: I rescind any strange patriotism in this post if the NSA is reading my emails without my permission at this very moment.)

Jr Deputy Accountant

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
