Since the famous shoe-throwing incident against George W. Bush by an Iraqi journalist, the shoe has received worldwide attention as a potent symbol of PROTEST against the corruption of the Powers that be.
Andy Kroll tells of a protestor he saw in Madison, Wisconsin in February of this year, "hoisted aloft a "No Union Busting!" sign with a black shoe perched atop it, the heel facing forward -- a severe sign of disrespect that Egyptian protesters directed at Mubarak".
Wouldn't you love to see a HUGE SCULPTURE erected somewhere in Washington, D.C., made only of old shoes, as a symbol of our COLLECTIVE INDIGNATION against the corruption of the system?
