4. I agree. If you read the article & look at the pictures it's definitely 'art'...

I live near a town in NY state where there are a whole bunch of old toilets set up in a yard on a main road as part of a man's protest art. Do I particularly 'like' it? I find it amusing but I wouldn't say I 'like' it, HOWEVER like it or not, agree with it or not, I'll defend his 1st Amendment right to his artistic expression. The town and artist have fought for years over it and yet it's still there because as tacky as some see it, it's still ART and definitely covered under the 1st Amendment just like this one is.

I hope he keeps fighting and WINS. His 1st Amendment right to artistic expression trumps the towns rules since there's no real health threat.
