Meek Met

It has happened so many times now that I can not bother to muster the excitement or righteous indignation that would normally be brought about by news such as this. It is no longer shocking and while still scary, the attempts at self-censorship by America's most proud and prestigious art and culture institutions, are so commonplace that I fear I am becoming immune.

So, I won't call this post The Evil Met or the The Cowardly Metropolitan Museum of Art. Seems that the Met isn't even under any kind of real threat, actual or imagined. It is all so trite now - rather boring actually.

Afraid to offend Muslims, the Met has pulled images of Mohammed from its Islamic Art section.
