AN ARTIST APOLOGIZES: Unlike sculptor

AN ARTIST APOLOGIZES: Unlike sculptor Gail Haffern, according to the BBC, “British artist Damien Hirst has ‘apologised unreservedly‘ for suggesting that the 11 September hijackers had created a ‘visually stunning’ work of art”:

“I apologise unreservedly for any upset I have caused, particularly to the families of the victims of the events on that terrible day.

“I in no way condone terrorism of any kind and I deeply regret any offence caused by the misrepresentation of my thoughts and feelings.”

Since we slagged Ms. Haffern for her comments, we’d like to give a hearty “way to go”, to Mr. Hirst.
