Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

CENSORING ART IS A BAD PRECEDENT!

Censoring art is a bad precedent!
There are many things more racy than Egon Schiele nude paintings, part of  exhibitions to celebrate the 100 years of his death. There are posters announcing those exhibitions on the bus stops in New York City showing nude women, but with their private part blurred. Paintings and sculptures of nude bodies, women or men have been done since the Greek times. So, censoring Egon Schiele blurring the private part of his nude paintings would be like putting a fig leaf in  nudes made by Modigliani

, Manet, Velazquez,  Picasso, Lautrec and many masters of the past.
