If you don't know about the infamous Spear painting at The Goodman Gallery portraying SA president Jacob Zuma in a Marxist stance with his knob out, you're pretty friggen lucky. It's all become a little too insane for my liking. I mean an entire govt turning all its energies on an art gallery, in a country of free speech no less, can only be described as insane. So now people are marching on the gallery for a second time, even after some creeps snuck in to deface the painting a few days ago... You'd think the government would be more outraged at, oh I dunno, our disgustingly high poverty and crime rates or at the sickening police corruption stats, maybe even the poor conditions of govt hospitals and schools and perhaps put their efforts into actually solving those problems and helping the people of this amazing country we all share. I guess marching on art and grabbing headlines away from real issues is easier.

UPDATE: Apparently this is the window of The Goodman Gallery right now. Fitting.
