A bit bloggy to just stick this up without sharing thoughts about the impact of the man and his ideas, but loved it when I saw it. via Boing Boing

Perhaps new and revolutionary ideas are also being developed and tested in the manner in which Shepherd Fairey (the creator of the original Obama poster) is being sued by the AP (Creationists) although both he and the original photographer (Evolutionists) aren’t bothered by it.
