Discussion around Gallery Censorship

I'd forgotten about this mention in City Arts (at the bottom of the review) of my private comments after a discussion at the Henry Art Gallery informed by the censorship at the Smithsonian portrait gallery in 2010. Here's the link. It's still a problem and I'm preparing a visit to DC in May with Jim (he has a meeting). We're planning to meet our senator, Patty Murray, for "coffee" (friends don't let friends go to Starbucks...). I was going to talk about arts funding WPA style and the issues of real estate for artists, but I might just include this link, too. What do you think? What kind of digital device, like a business card with a couple of links, should I leave? Flash drive? or something else?
