When members of the County Board of Supervisors first laid eyes on Edward Kienholz's "Back Seat Dodge '38," way back in 1966 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, they saw pornography. Labeling the sculptural portrayal of a drunken, life-size couple making love in a truncated automobile "revolting," "blasphemous" and "dastardly," the supervisors charged that the scruffy artwork went "way beyond the limits of public decency" and strongly urged the museum to remove it.

Venice is drowning. Bombay's historic core of Victorian buildings is being overwhelmed by modern culture. War-torn Iraq is suffering from looting and the destruction of its archeological heritage.

Ted Stevens, the gruff and bullishly determined longtime former U.S. senator from Alaska, died in Monday's crash of a small plane near a small fishing town on Alaska's Bristol Bay, a family spokesman confirmed Tuesday. "The family has just been notified that he did not survive," said Mitch Rose, former chief of staff for Stevens, 86, who served 41 years in the Senate before being convicted on corruption charges and losing his seat in 2008.

Myths die hard. Especially creation myths. Messing with the symbolic origins of a world isn't something to be undertaken lightly.
