On the International Front

This just in from the Brisbane Times:

Face value

Rupert Murdoch's campaign to control Dow Jones took a twist this week when the New York portrait artist Geoffrey V. Raymond showed up at the company's offices with a painting of the tycoon's face, which was placed on the kerb for passers-by to scrawl messages on. Within a few minutes the artwork, titled The Annotated Murdoch, had been scrawled with "I don't care" and "Keep the Wall Street Journal out of this scumbag's hands". By week's end the work was up on eBay, with bidding starting at $US3500 ($4000).

I don't make the news up--I just report it.
