    Where\'s the boob?

    Yet another instance of denouncement of woman - God forbid they should be
    seen in matters of state. Keep them behind the drape. Did you ever notice
    the correlation between the name Eve and the word "evil"? Who do you
    suppose named her?

    The following is a letter read by Claire Braz-Valentine, the author, at this
    year's In Celebration of the Muse, Cabrillo College. It is worth knowing
    that the author is a woman of 60+ years, conservatively dressed and quite

    On January 28, 2002, Attorney General John Ashcroft announced that he spent
    $8,000 of taxpayer's money for drapes to cover up the exposed breast of The
    Spirit of Justice, an 18 ft aluminum statue of a woman that stands in the
    Department of Justice's Hall of Justice.

    John, John, John, you've got your priorities all wrong. While men fly
    airplanes into skyscrapers, dive bomb the pentagon, while they stick
    explosives into their shoes, and then book a seat right next to us, while
    they hide knives in their luggage, steal kids on school buses, take little
    girls from their beds at night, drive trucks into our state capital
    buildings, while our president calls dangerous men all over the world
    evildoers and devils, while we live in the threat of biological warfare,
    nuclear destruction, annihilation, you are out buying yardage to save
    Americans from the appalling alarming, abominable aluminum alloy of evil,
    that terrible ten foot tin tittie. You might not be able to find Bin Laden,
    but you sure as hell found the hooter in the hall of justice.

    It's not that we aren't grateful. But while we were begging the women of
    Afghanistan to not cover up their faces, you are begging your staff members
    to just cover up that nipple, to save the American people from that
    monstrous metal mammary. How can we ever thank you?

    So, in your office every morning, in your secret prayer meeting, while an
    American woman is sexually assaulted every 6 seconds, while anthrax floats
    around the post office and settles in the chest of senior citizens, you've
    got another chest on your mind. While American sons arrive home in body bags
    and heat seeking missiles fly around a foreign country looking for any warm
    body, you think of another body. And you pray for the biggest bra in the
    world. John, you see that breast on the Spirit of Justice in the spirit of
    your own inhibited sexuality. And when we women see our grandmothers, our
    mothers, our daughters, our granddaughters, our sisters, ourselves, when we
    women see that statue, the Spirit of Justice, we see the spirit of strength,
    the spirit of survival. Every day we view innocent bodies dragged out of
    rubble, and women and children laid out like thin limp dolls and baptized
    into death as collateral damage, and we see the hollow-eyed Afghani mother
    whose milk has dried up underneath her burka in famine, in shame, and her
    children are dead at her breast.

    While you look at that breast, John, that jug on the Spirit of Justice, and
    deal with your thoughts of lust and sex and nakedness, we see it as a
    testimony to motherhood. You see it as a tit.

    It's not the money it cost. It's the message you send. We've got the right
    to live in freedom. We've got the right to cheat Americans out of millions
    of dollars and then just not want to tell congress about it. We've got the
    right to drop bombs, night and day, on a small country that has no army, no
    navy, no military at all, because we've got the right to bear arms. But we
    just better not even think about the right to bare breasts.

    So now John, you can be photographed while you stand there and talk about
    guns and bombs and poisons without that breast appearing over
    your right shoulder, without that bodacious bosom bothering you and we just
    wanted to tell you in the spirit of justice, in the spirit of truth, John,
    there is still one very big boob left standing there in that picture.
