munro harrap: There is also another good reason for keeping all the art we have here here. Its called war. You can see online what IS and the Taliban do, so their people's culture would be safer were it in the UK, all of ity, rather than in Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan, and we now also have to control who is allowed to buy stuff as any number of artworks purchased privately not only disappear into bank vaults,

but can be bought by people who then destroy them as ideologically unacceptable.
I dare say that is already happening, so stop sales and guard our human heritage.

@Wye Photography

Just a little constructive criticism for you.

That's a good one. Apparently no news gets through to you.

Good thing the UK hasn't allowed any terrorists to enter the place!

If the major news organizations and the Presidents don't want to talk about it, there isn't much anyone else can do.

Frank Petronio: More Leftist propaganda... Block and deport the illegals before they ruin things further.

Only a fool could say what you say. A smug self-righteous fool who doesn't have a clue what is happening in the world. A fool who believes propaganda that sounds good, so you can remain ignorant. It tells you that you're morally superior for thinking like a politically correct tool, and that's good enough for you. Reality doesn't enter into the debate for you. All that matters is what you believe regardless of any facts. You don't want to hear about the major problems that come with this kind of immigration. That would be a downer. That would be reality, and you're not able to cope with reality. You should stay clueless.

Deport the legal immigrants, too.

Here's a tip to you guys who make Molotov cocktails: Do NOT PUT THE RAG IN THE BOTTLE!! You cork the bottle and fix the alcohol-soaked rag to the outside. When bottle breaks the fuel will ignite, and not before. This way when you light the rag, there is less danger of burning you and everyone else when you try to throw an uncorked burning bottle of napalm.

LOL. If you say so, 0.

Seems like printing is much too expensive. Other manufacturing processes like injection molding should be adequate and much cheaper.

That can be easily fixed in Adobe Premiere Elements.

I'm happy that dpreview didn't try to whitewash Sochi. Our media in the US is determined to hide the truth from the people.
