New Mac Johnson column

The Scandal of American Imperfection
All criticism of the military over alleged “mishandling” of the Koran ended this week, when it was revealed that the Guantanamo Bay guards accused of the acts were actually being funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. The New York Times gave rave reviews to “The Guantanamo Project” as the guards call their art co-operative, citing the powerful message that “acts of artistic juxtaposition” can send about religious absolutism, patriarchy, and the tyranny of unquestioned symbols. “The best show since Piss Christ!” raved Newsweek.

After reading this first paragraph (I haven't finished the whole column) I already know this is going to be a good one.
