    I make a habit of following a number of art law related blogs, including this one, and do take time during my breaks to visit and read them while at work and school. Imagine my surprise and consternation today when I was in the office and the first thing that appeared on the front of this blog was an enormous image of a nude woman with a graphic rubber phallus.

    Of course, I do realize that this is art, and that art can be controversial, but please take into consideration the fact that some readers are viewing this blog in situations where colleagues, co-workers and supervisors could be in view of the content therein.

    Perhaps cropping the image and then providing a link to the uncensored version in the article text would be an agreeable solution.

  • TLT,
    Thank you for your comments. You do have a point, and one that we will certainly take into consideration.

    Thank you for reading Clancco, in private and in public.
