The Smithsonian chose comfy, profitable Censorship over honest Art (like
in 2003, when they censored photos of the Arctic that suggested global warming). This time they removed David Wojnarowicz's video artwork "A Fire in My Belly" because it offended Catholics & Republicans -- the same people who "offended" Wojnarowicz & millions of others by denying their humanity as they suffered & died horrible AIDS deaths. I guess some people's discomfort trumps other people's agony at the Smithsonian.
