It's Open Season on van Goghs

In November, 2004 Theo van Gogh, great-grandson of the brother of Vincent van Gogh, was murdered in broad daylight and used as a human sticky-note in exceedingly gruesome fashion,
"I cannot feel for you ... because I believe you are an infidel."
and now his 14-year old son, Lieuwe, gets to be repeatedly beaten up and taunted in Holland's tolerant public schools.

There is no justice.

Vincent van Gogh, arguably the greatest artist who ever lived, died in 1890 two days after shooting himself in the chest. His last words according to his brother and closest friend, Theo, were: "La tristesse durera toujours." This is French for: "The sadness will last forever."
