Apropos the avant-garde

Sounds smart to me too, Greg. The second and third paragraph are especially gooood! I have often thought we really only need a handful of those long boring "treatises" from the curators of these modern shows; you just rotate these 6 or 7 from museum to museum and no one would ever notice. You could actually switch most and no one would even notice. No one reads them either. Remember a few years ago, I think it was in a philosophy or psychology magazine, this guy sent in a long discourse that was pure gobbledygook? He made up his credentials and they printed his gibberish. He later publicly told the world it was just pure rubbish... does anyone remember who and where that was? I think it was maybe 15 years ago.
