Jail Sentence for Dangerous Art

St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "A retired art teacher ... was sentenced to 20 days in jail Monday after he refused to make changes to art pieces in his front yard that the court and city officials have deemed dangerous."

Ann Althouse: "And it was political too. Lewis Greenberg was trying to say something about the Holocaust with his pointy front-yard sculpture. But think of the poor children who might be impaled. And the adults who think it’s really ugly."
