More Parenting Tips from CherkyB

The conversation I had with my darling son this morning as I was walking out of the bedroom:
MaxieC: "You're a jerk!"

Me, CherkyB: "Huh?"

MaxieC: "You're a jerk!"

Me, CherkyB: "Why? What did I do to be a jerk?"

MaxieC: "You're an idiot moron!"

Me, CherkyB: "OK. I'll just tell Santa not to come anymore."

MaxieC: "Heh heh. Just kidding. You're nice."

Bloviating' or not, lovely piece. I especially liked the pity for the urban art specialist. Sonja, you sort of have a small point, but you miss the larger one. Most readers of this article are familiar enough with the cultural landscape Collings describes to know whether they agree that contemporary art is providing woefully thin gruel compared with other artforms, both conceptually and aesthetically. Sure, he's blowing off steam here (and I enjoyed that), but contrary to the impression you give by quoting that steam blowing out of context, he provides examples and analysis enough to make his point.
