Listen up, the man is that good and maybe if we are lucky he’ll produce 5 more prints to mimic his installations.Back to Shepard. Today is Super Tuesday, and for those who vote it is an important day. What will be interesting to gauge is how Obama will fair in California, the state where Shepard unleashed his poster campaign in support of the candidate. If only there was an exit poll asking if their vote was influenced by Shepard’s poster. The tally would be something like, 18 – 42 year olds stated yes, while the geezers were still color blind. Whatever will be, will be.

Bill Richardson, the candidate with the most credentials and most suitable for the job, has dropped out of the presidential race. Now hopefully he’ll team up with Mike Bloomberg to create a force that will keep our country relevant.
