As one of the few cultural institutions included in the new World Trade Center plans, New York’s Drawing Center is suddenly under fire for showing art that on occasion expresses a political viewpoint. The Daily News started it with this front page story, other tabloids have joined in and now Pataki has caved to the pressure.

So our response to a terrible attack on New York City is to stifle free expression? Feels like evidence of defeat to me. Imagine a “Freedom Center” that offers as many perspectives as there are visitors—then I’d believe our resolve had truly strengthened.
