… and Not Sticker Literature That Says What Someone Else Wants You Say. Well, that could have been the name of the project, but it’s called The Bubble Project. “I printed 15,000 of these bubble stickers and place them on top of ads all over New York City.

John Dean, Nixon’s counsel during the Watergate scandal, pointed out that with his press conference on the spying on Americans wiretap crime, George Bush is the first sitting president to openly admit that he committed an impeachable offence.
