Tales calculated to drive you... Is the Los Angeles police department really in the business of closing down exhibits of parodies of corporate logos? And, if so, is this story really being completely ignored by the LA news media?

One would certainly like to discover that the story isn't true, or that there was some reason for April 23's raid on the Transport Gallery other than (as police are alleged to have said) the "agressive and offensive" nature of the show's content. Because if not, one can only wonder how these particular cops would have dealt with the threat to society posed by an average issue of Mad Magazine. [11:46 AM]
