I'm sure it’s a direct intentional reference to the sort of dead-king porn I posted above. According to the website for the demo organizers, the “endorsers” of the rally include Ed Asner, Susan Sarandon, John Sayles, Martin Sheen, Al Sharpton, Gloria Steinham, Studs Terkel, Jane Fonda, Lawrence Ferlinghetti (still alive!) Gore Vidal (that famous man of the people), Wavy Gravy (he had a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream named after him, so he must be heeded. Attention must be paid!) Jessica Lange, Michael Lerner, Mark Crispin Miller, Ed Begley Jr., Harry Belafonte, Gabriel Byrne. Ward Churchill, and someone described as the “executive director” of the “Hate Free Zone Washington.” Also Casey Kasem, the voice of “Shaggy” on Scooby Doo. I do not think that any of these people want anyone decapitated. I also do not think that any of these people would have told the woman to put the sign away. I do think that I will recall that sign when I hear their names again.
