Joint Resolution Passes Unanimously
To Authorize Acts of Artistic Mediation

The US Department of Art & Technology, along with the Global Virtualization Council, unanimously passed a Joint Resolution "To Authorize the Use of Acts of Artistic Mediation"  (US DAT J. RES. 1).

Joined by the President and First Lady, along with staff of the Department, Secretary Randall M. Packer announced the Joint Resolution in a speech today at the US Capitol in Washington, DC.

Secretary Packer hailed the Resolution as a "final test" of the Bush Regime's willingness "to submit to any and all methodologies to verify his compliance. His cooperation must be prompt and unconditional, or he will face the severest consequences."
