Federal authorities now say they will return the State of Sabotage faux passports confiscated last week on their way to Cincinnati's Contemporary Arts Center where they were to be exhibited. From the Associated Press:
...A reviewing office of the customs and border protection bureau, part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, decided the items didn't fit the parameters for confiscation as immoral or harmful materials, customs spokeswoman Cherise Miles said in a telephone interview from Chicago....
The exhibit now includes a statement by (State of Sabotage artist Robert) Jelinek, along with the Department of Homeland Security's confiscation receipt.
"Who would think that the U.S. government has a pronounced interest in contemporary fine art these days?" the statement reads. "The homeland art obsession goes so far that our luggage and personal items were almost all damaged and all artistic materials were confiscated."

The bad news is, […]
