The worldwide financial crisis had all but devastated the arts. Now, Art Basel, and the art world in general, has reason to celebrate. It seems that prices are up and big spending has returned.

A recent anti-Israeli demonstration at a local grocery store has taken on an ironic twist. The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions group led a rally in front of a Publix supermarket located in North Miami. Organizer Len Kaminsky insisted the protest was not anti-Jewish, but rather anti-Zionist. Kaminsky said he is a Jew who's very upset with "the way that Palestinians are being treated by Israel." He is heading a boycott of Israeli products to make his point.

Unfortunately, it's not quite that simple.
