That rascal Karl Rove!

He just can't stay out of trouble. I'm trying so hard to win in Iraq and do all those other things I'm supposed to, and he's out there tagging my plane.

Maybe I'll send him to Iraq.

I love it!!! One of the best (and expensive) practical jokes yet! Got the Air Force to look! Made many people wonder how they did it.

Having been to Andrews AFB and seen the security around the REAL hanger, I'm sure the result would have been very different had they tried it!

I hope our government doesn't try to charge Ecko with some invented crime: "impersonating AF-1", "fooling government workers", "holding the President in less than high esteem", or other insane ideas.

Ecko's message, hmmm. Yeah we should be free to spray grafitti at least on our own property, and criminalizing mere possession of spray paint and markers certainly is Fascistic. Defacing someone's property is quite another matter. Cities trashed-up with pointless, ugly grafitti just contribute to the decline of neighborhoods and the spread of violent gangs. Defaced direction signs become useless. I won't complain if speed limit signs are obliterated though. I'm not sure exactly where Mr. Ecko draws the line. Of course, I myself 'defaced' with a political message a very important landmark in a Communist capital once!

The Berlin Wall was an wonderful example of being the "people's canvas", and featured masterpieces of art, ugly grafitti, and everything in between. Maybe every city needs a public canvas like that. Los Angeles has had some stunning volunteer-painted art on freeway underpasses, etc. And maybe such spaces for the public would help spare our buildings, signs and parks.

We certainly have the right to freedom of speech, and 'grafitti' for the purpose of alerting citizens to government crimes would be a vital right, particularly in dire threats to our freedom when no other means of communication might be possible. In China that would likely get people sent to the organ-harvesting prisons--a death sentence.

Food for thought, certainly!
Thank you Mr. Ecko for getting people thinking.
