After our conversation, returning on the bus (as you know) to Teaneck, I read the New York Post (of Thursday, December 2). Two stories pleased me: "’Stickup’ artist strikes city cabs" and "WikiLeak arrest got botched." The first was about an artist known as "the Tailor" who sneaks about at night, placing stickers on New York taxi cabs. On top of a generic symbol of a man hailing a cab, he places customized images, including Moses, Spiderman, Mickey Mouse, a Hasid, a cop and the Statue of Liberty — each raising an arm. "By day, the Tailor works in marketing for a Fortune 500 company. ‘But this is a chance for me to express my creative side,’ he said." In the second story, State Department spokesman Philip Crowley fulminates about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange: "Mr. Assange is not a journalist," he said. "He is an anarchist."
