Arts Fuck You for Talking

From Mike Daisey:
Last night’s performance of INVINCIBLE SUMMER was disrupted when eighty-seven members of a Christian group walked out of the show en masse, and chose to physically attack my work by pouring water on and destroying the original of the show outline.
Daisey’s offense? He said “fuck.”
I doubt I will ever forget the look in his face as he defaced the only original of the handwritten show outline—it was a look of hatred, and disgust, and utter and consuming pride.
Rest of the story here.
(Back in 1918, H.L. Mencken wrote in Damn!: “He’d be a much nicer fellow if he had a good swear now and then.” Obviously, Mencken’s wisdom stands.)
