I thought this deserved some attention

Apparently the L.A. police shut down an art show solely (according to the linked blog post) because someone disagreed with its content. Now, for the record, I disagree with the ideas that spawned the content of the show. In fact, it's grossly and obviously wrong from my perspective. However, there is no rational reason that it should have been shut down, and from the limited amount I read about this issue, it is a pretty clear-cut case of government censorship.

I hope this case gets more widely reported. I know it's cliche (I can't add a little accent thingy over the "e") but the answer to "wrong" speech is more speech - not enforced government closing of an art exhibit.
