Shoes For George

Last week Unfair Park told our dear Friends about an Oak Cliff gallery, Decorazon, soliciting international contributions to a show to be called "Farewell Shoes for Mr. Bush," which is dedicated to our new neighbor (Hiya, W!) and some shoes. Unfair Park told readers that proprietors of the gallery had described the show as politically neutral, a claim that elicited howls of derision from some readers.

Over the weekend, Unfair Park received a picture of one of the initial contributions; Friends, make of it what you will. But, look, shoe-tossing farewells -- they are all the rage!
