I agree with you DJ.

Who is this person who gets to decide what gets public funding and what doesn't? Art, like religion, is a very personal thing. Who am I to say that the Elvis painted on velvet hanging on someone's wall is not art. To the person who owns it,it may be the most beautiful thing in their life.

My opinion is Giuliani is just doing this for the political effect. He's done it with other issues before and he will again. To deny public funding because someone doesn't like one exhibit is a dangerous precedent -- you start there and who knows where it will end.
