Warhol stands up!

The Andy Warhol Foundation has threatended to pull further funding  to the Smithsonian Institution unless it re-instates the censored David Wojnarowicz video, A Fire in My Belly, cut from a show after conservatives voiced ignorant outrage. Joel Wachs, the foundation’s president, put it in read-my-lips terms in a letter to Smithsonian Secretary G. Wayne Clough: "Such blatant censorship is unconscionable. It is inimical to everything the Smithsonian Institution should stand for, and everything the Andy Warhol Foundation does stand for."
