Okay, I like the USA channel on my cable.  I do.  I watch Monk and Psych and all the reruns of NCIS and House and Law & Order: SVU.  But my beef is their new campaign.  These Approved Characters.  To what standards are they being held?  Well, the one that gets my goat the most is Shepard Fairey.  His art is kinda cool.  Perhaps he’s a wonderful guy.  But why have him on USA painting with his spray paint and stencil in some alley.  Then he says that he enjoys doing what he’s not supposed to and getting away with it.  Does that teach our youth that grafiti is wrong?  Or does it say do it well and don’t get caught?
