    There is a very famous artist by the name of Michaelangelo who lived about 500 years ago — you may have heard of him, or at least the turtle named after him. One of his more famous works was a statue of a naked man. The law as written would have likely made it a criminal act to display that statute, a replica of that statue, or a photograph of that statute in Rhode Island. Why? Because museums, art professors and journalists lack the ability to prove they have the model’s permission to show him naked.

    When a law would prevent a museum display of classical art on the grounds it harms someone who has been dead for centuries, you know the law is so badly written it needs to be vetoed. Hating a woman for doing the right thing is never a good response to a veto on a bad law.

      You realize Mary Anne isn’t here, so you can’t really talk to her, right? And you’ve commented to her picture page, not the post, so no one will ever see your comment except me.
