I think it is great that there is a Pollock stamp but I do not think it
is crucial to have the cigarette and drinking involved.
Can't we appretciate the art for what it is and not get involved with his
vices? I do understand that something of who we are is in our creations.
But it's just a stamp, not a whole exhibition of his work. If there was
a Tolouse - Latrec stamp would we need him to have a glass of absinthe?
