Banksy Pushes the Envelope, Talks about 9/11
I don't have much to say to introduce this blog post this morning because I'm speechless. I just about fell off my chair when I read this, this morning. Banksy posted his daily piece today accompanied by an article he wrote. Today’s piece was going "to be an op-ed column in the New York Times."
