| Flag in toilet painting removed
"A controversial painting has been removed from a lunch room at the State Department of Justice headquarters in Sacramento," AP reports Tuesday (excerpted here so as to present photo).
The painting titled: "T'anks to Mr. Bush" showed a US map inside a toilet. It and two other pieces were part of a display put on by Lawyers For the Arts.Advertisement
A spokesman says Attorney General Bill Lockyer ordered the picture moved because of growing tensions over the Middle East, and not because of public complaints.
