Great post, David. I should also point out that the Trilling article also appears in The Moral Obligation to Be Intelligent, the recent collection that's still in print. It's where I first read that piece.

Ditto, DL. I wonder what so many of those distinguished white men, with their years of dedication and devotion to the art, would make of our Facebook generation? I'd go to the 92nd St Y to hear THAT talk!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
