In the Chicago Tribune
Not a bad analysis of the current state of the arts. Basically....It's worse than you think:
The only way to achieve "decency" without "censorship" is if artists make their own choices. Tell them what to do -- or, worse yet, tell them what they are going to do before they do it -- and you have censorship, pure and simple. It may well be desirable censorship from some people's point of view, but
politicians... should at least call it by its proper name.
Free, empowered artists make their own agendas.
