I saw it just fine. I think people who complain about that type of thing need to find something else to do with their time. If you don't want to see it, don't look at it. If you accidentally see it, its not the end of the world.

Did Mr. Ashcroft strike again? He had a similar problem recently... Big grin

What does the headline say? I have the paper but I don't know what I'm looking for.

PROSA, obviously you've got access to the New York Times online site. How about sparing us all the aggravation of having to sign up and just copying the story here?  Confused

For those of you that couldn't read it, there was some flap becasue SWF removed a painting in an exhibit that pictured a woman breast feeding (nursing) her child.

I work for a radio station right near SWF and I put pictures of our stunt guy out protesting with the other protesters...

Sorry 'bout that ... I had thought that anyone could see a Times story via a link whether or not they were registered. Anyway, here's the main part of it:

The nudity in the painting is hardly an unfamiliar sight: the slope of a woman's breast partly covered by a baby's mouth.
But that was too much for some passengers here at Stewart International Airport in Orange County, where the painting was on display in a community art exhibition in the concourse. After just two days last week, the painting drew 15 complaints and, at the airport's request, was removed from the exhibition.
Only that was not the end of it. By banishing the painting, the airport offended the artist, Shawn Dell Joyce of Montgomery, N.Y., and many other women who see the painting — and the act of breast-feeding —as something that should be a source of pride.
Today, Ms. Joyce and 40 stroller-wheeling moms protested outside the airport terminal, waving photographs of breasts and babies at passengers and onlookers for nearly two hours. Though snowflakes fell at a steady clip, several women unzipped their jackets and made a point of nursing their infants in public.

Why people get so uptight about something so natural is just ONE of the many things wrong with the conservative movement in this country, they seem to forget where all of us came from, and what are parents had to do to make us. GET A LIFE!  Yeah sure

Most likely the complainers were the LIBERAL Hillary Clinton type from National Organization of Women.

How do these idiots take a shower? They must flip out when they look down and see a pair of breasts on their chests.

Thanks for copying in the story, PROSA!  Big thumbs up

Oh, and Cx, SWF is the code for Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, NY. It's about 55 miles north of New York City.

No problemo.

It just dawned on me ... apropos of that recent thread on funny airport codes (FAT, FUK, etc.), you probably could add SWF to that list, as it's a common abbreviation in the personals ads.
