She said it was heartbreaking to learn that LePage may have decided to remove the mural after getting an anonymous letter that said the mural was reminiscent of brainwashing tactics in communist North Korea.
Taylor's father served in the Korean War as a forward observer. "He was a man who stood by every word he spoke," she said in her statement. "Perhaps we should hang my father's Bronze Star for his service in Korea in the now-empty reception area of the Maine Department of Labor until the mural is returned, as a symbol of the importance of remembering our history and not shuttering it away."
There's also talk that the Governor could be in lukewarm (in olden days it would have been hot) water over breaking the contract with the artist. Is there no end to the pain Gov. Paul LePage will have to suffer over his actions? One can only hope.
There have been any number of responses to the removal of the murals, but the one that brought me to write about it again is a video put together by video producer Geoffrey Leighton showing how the murals could regain some legitimacy by adding some corporate faces to the mix. Brillliant!
Note: I found this video via The Liberal Light Facebook page, which then led me to The Maddow Blog, and now I'm posting it here. Passing it on. Networking is how we're going to get things done. I see a trend growing on our side, finally. We're networking, we're blog-reciprocating, we're joining together to spread the overwhelming evidence of wrong-doing in every corner of this country.
If we keep it going we can't fail.
