Gasp! Banksy went to a private school!

July 15, 2008

I’m not sure why it is deemed important to uncover the “identity” of somebody who has chosen to be anonymous.  A Google News search brought up 141 articles from the past 22 hours on the search term  Banksy.  I’m at even more of a loss to understand why it is considered interesting that the artist known as Banksy might have been privately educated.  The tone of the various “public school education” revelations seemed to suggest that this rendered his work somehow inauthentic.

    The public school / private school thing bugs me. I attended public school for 7 years and private school for 5, what does that make me?
