"I’m writing a futuristic action novel right now — I just named one of the characters last night around midnight, I wrote it down on a piece of paper someplace — and it’s going to be a vehicle that makes my usual points, but in a totally different way," Fox News host, radio commentator, and author Glenn Beck tells GQ. "I’m also a painter, and I’m going to start doing more art. And I’ve made some sketches of things I want to do, and I’m going to do that this summer as well. That’s the point of art; you can make your point in a million different ways. When the left was putting crucifixes in urine, they said, 'No, no, no, no, it’s art. It makes you think.
