Instagram Moment – January 3, 2020

As the horror of the wildfires continues to unfold in Australia, Prime Minister Scott Morrison felt the heat of anger from residents forced to evacuate, when he visited them at an encampment in the town of Cobargo, New South Wales on January 2.  With the death toll for both humans and animals rising, it didn’t seem appropriate for Morrison to take a vacation as the fires grew.  As people are wont to do even in the worst of situations – especially to political figures – Australian artist Scott Marsh has done what artists do best: made a stinging rebuke.  His “Merry Crisis” tee shirts have already proven popular.  Marsh isn’t just expressing bad sentiments towards Morrison.  Proceeds from sales of the shirts will be donated to helping victims of the fires.  Someone, of course, must always keep our elected officials in check.
