New Albright-Knox Acquisitions Do Not Replace What Was Sold

With all due respect to longtime art critic Jack Foran, I must disagree with the basic premise of his review of the Albright-Knox exhibition, Decade: Contemporary Collecting 2002-2012 (“Artscene,” Artvoice v11n37). Foran states, “This is the new art that replaced the objects of older eras that was sold off to buy more current stuff in the hope of keeping the gallery in the forefront among modern and contemporary world art venues.” This statement, which sets up the entire review, is misleading in a number of ways.

Deadbeat Mom

I was inspired by Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” speech. So inspired that I went to see my mother. This is what I told her.

Left of the Truth

Say what you will about us, conservatives and libertarians at least have no need to misrepresent their own ideas and goals to win elections, but the left find it necessary to feint to the right during campaigns.

The Party of Lincoln

I, too, grew up in a home with an elevator. It didn’t raise cars up from the ground floor just like Mitt Romney’s, but it got us up to our fifth-floor tenement apartment in the Bronx where I slept in the foyer. Then, we lived our American dream, a dream of moving from the Bronx to Yonkers, which was actually pretty much just like the Bronx, except I had my own bedroom in our new fifth-floor apartment. Again, kinda like Mitt and the ever-hard-working Ann, (she never had an au pair?), we also had an elevator. It took you or anyone else up to the six fifth floor-apartments in our building.

The Rapture

Getting a different president, that won’t work.
