Our First Amendment rights are no guarantee. In 2001, shortly after
the September 11th attacks, polls indicated that 50% of the U.S.
population agreed with the statement "The First Amendment goes too far
in the rights it guarantees." This dramatic climate change has a huge
impact on art, how it is made, exhibited, and discussed. Now, when
works by certain artists or of an indefinable political nature are
exhibited, we can virtually guarantee the Secret Service will show up.

Since September 11th, the media has reported a number of cases of the
Secret Service visiting art exhibitions based on citizens' reports
that artworks posed threats to the president and national security.
