Clearly, artists need better PR. But wasn’t that kind of the point? But where’s the GOP on this? I heard they were really big on personal responsibility.
For those keeping track of the score, on the grand scale of “Hmm, that sucks,” to “You’ve committed a crime,” we have some interesting new developments.
Say you dump a grand piano on a sandbar in southern Florida, you’ve committed a crime and could face felony charges and prison time. Why? Dumping is a felony.
But say it’s kind of like a larger-scale dump, like 4.9 million barrels of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico… any jail time for that? Not so much. All you have to do is pay select Gulf victims a small percentage of the billions in profits that you earn annually.
