Hi there,
Re: The Deep Cove "Bong"

It seems like the same three people are being interviewed about this proposed art installation over and over again in one media publication after another.

One is an aggrieved resident, another a small time pol, and third, the poor arts bureaucrat who's job it is to defend the piece.

It speaks volumes about the quality of independent journalism or thoughtful analytical criticism out there!

Where are the people who were on the Committee that approved it? Why are they not speaking up?

And perhaps the absence of any contemporary public art (or for that matter book shops or music stores or even good restaurants save the doughnut place!) provides proof that north shore residents off seymour parkway likes their natural views, their kayaks and their property values - cultural stuff is what they use their omni vans to get to!

Heaven, indeed.
