Mooninites invade Boston

Here’s my take on the Mooninite-art-bomb-scare-brouhaha. Summary: Stupid marketing ploy horribly and humorously misinterpreted; knuckleheads; tells us something about state of art and fear in Boston; but it’s not art, just corporate graffiti; why should we put up with this corporate defacement of our public buildings?

Here and here are links to the local perpetrators’ (in action above) own documentation of the thing. Here and here is video of their “’70s hair” press conference – which had, uh, Dadaist potential, but turned out to be a dud. Here are the Boston Police Department's and the Attorney General's reviews.
