Yet another reason to hate Wal-Mart

Ok, so this high school student is assigned a civic's project to take photos and illustrate his rights under the Bill of Rights. Harmless, right? Well, not once you get Wal-Mart involved.

"Wal-Mart called the police on a high-school student who brought in a pic of a homemade anti-George Bush poster for photo-finishing. The Secret Service went to the kid's high-school and confiscated the poster."

How much pressure can one head take?

I had a headache for about six hours today. I did this sketch in Flash MX as a form of therapy. It didn't work.
