Wackystuff is having a money mail art call.  Here is my bill... It is worth zero... seems to me the same value as human life around the globe.  It makes me very sad.  The woman in the center is Neda who was shot in the chest at a demonstration in Tehran, Iran.  She just wanted her vote to count.  Or maybe she was at the wrong time or place.  Now she is dead and her family has been dragged out of their apartment... and left to what fate?  Neda can be seen dying in a video that was once uploaded to utube--then copied to various other sites before it was deleted by utube.  The internet has changed the world... citizens and common man can now see first hand what is really happening around the world.  The media and government is less of a filter of reality... now that pictures can be uploaded and sent all over the world via a cell phone.  I'm not sure where all this is leading.
