Ohhhhh... there will always be a "Red Mennace" of some sort... in fact, ironicly (or propheticly) enough, i made several satirical abstract paintings on those topics less than a year before this all really came to a head. they were pollock style free-form as a background, and then had either paint dripped or finger-painted into letters. they're in storage, or burried in my portfolio so i can't dig them out to refresh my memory, but i reember what two of them said: the first was "life just isn't livin' without a handgun" (pre-columbine too, heh) and the other was "them damn cammle jockies are the next red menace"
which once again brings us to "does life imitate art, or does art iminate life?" and then to get DEEP into it, "is the dreamer dreaming the dreamed, or is the dreamed dreaming the dreamer (read some Casteneda if you want more insight into that last one, i'm not doing ALL your research for you, lol)
Fight the power! Damn the man!

Power to the People, Keep Hope Alive!
Peace in the Middle East!
