I've Been an Art "Critic"
It seems as though the big guns of Islamic fundamentalism are slowly, surely turning from the ancient Buddhas of Afghanistan to the antiquities of Egypt. You know, I've been a critic of art in the past... but my criticism has been of so called "modern art," useless tripe that is no more than something a child can create. Works such as those of Michaelangelo or DaVinci or even the great Mozart and Beethoven are clearly worth preserving for all generations. The art of ancient Egypt falls into this category as well, and may soon be lost. What a terrible dilemna we find ourselves in. Art is no reason to wage war, and I have a firm belief that each nation is predisposed to its own destiny. But what of the treasures of the world, when a tyrannous government takes over and starts destroying them? Perhaps some clandestine operation to recover the art before it is lost forever? Maybe, but it sure will be hard to get those pyramids out, even in a hummer.

I have an idea: We can threaten to pull our $2,000,000,000 in aid if they destroy so much as a Bobble Head.
