Yet more art, yet more suffering
Someone here (I forget who) introduced me to the glorious art-work of George W Bush the other day, and I was struck by the similarity between Dubblya's magnum opus of Angela Merkel and the brilliant restoration job done on the face of Jesus H Christ by that elderly Italian mad woman.
It is strange, because I get the impression that they both come from such different backgrounds. If the old girl had spent her early years taking drugs, drinking and avoiding confrontational hot-spots by buying her way into the National Guard, then she might be an even better painter than she is now.
I suppose the one thing they have in common is that they both have a lot of time on their hands and are compelled to act to change their world for the better.
