But it also means "the American night", and the curators want to imply that the US under Bush is currently passing through a "long night of the soul" and has lost touch with the Enlightenment (itself, of course, European in inspiration). This is a show that will see the US "through a glass darkly".


It's pretty typical for America to catch heat from Europe for not being "Enlightened" enough to allow in milions of Muslims immigrants that draw welfare, do not assimilate and have their own courts that function outside the law. I guess if we were REALLY enlightened, we'd have riots like France, too.


*sigh* I guess I'll drive my non-flaming car around and not get hit by rocks or bottles and just wish I was as awesome as the French were...
I, for one, would love to meet a European who didn't get their political ideology from a bumper sticker or a headline from a yellow journal.

You're so lucky I didn't see this comment two months ago. That was two whole months (and one half month) in which I wasn't developing a desire to vomit in your face the way you vomited in our host's journal.

You misspelled "I, for one, would love to meet a member of the American right who didn't get all their information about the world from Fox News, Mallard Fillmore, the Moonie Washington Times or some other identical organ of the Republican/Dominionist noise machine; then again, people in Hell would love ice water." Hope this helps.
