Kitsch, using for raw material the debased and academicized simulacra of genuine culture, welcomes and cultivates this insensibility. It is the source of its profits. Kitsch is mechanical and operates by formulas. Kitsch is vicarious experience and faked sensations. Kitsch changes according to style, but remains always the same. Kitsch is the epitome of all that is spurious in the life of our times. Kitsch pretends to demand nothing of its customers except their money -- not even their time.

Stepping Out - The New Yorker

This administration will not talk about any plans we may or may not have, said Bush. We re going to find these evil-doers. and we re going to hold them accountable along with the other devils who have given Osama shelter in order to teach them the one lesson that we ourselves have never been able to learn: in history, as in physics, there is no action without re-action. Or, as Edward S Herman puts it, One of the most durable features of the . culture is the inability or refusal to recognise US crimes.

Greenberg: Avant-Gardde and Kitsch

Clive Anderson: Are you guys calling for more women to be involved, or for more men to be more in touch with their feminine side, or for the structures to be more related to both sexes or the feminine sex?

Antony and the Johnsons news

Presumably one otherwise way of handling such a movement is - when it elects a president by a half-million votes - to call in a like-minded Supreme Court majority to stop a state s recounts, create arbitrary deadlines, and invent delays until our ancient electoral system, by default, must give the presidency to the system s candidate as opposed to the one the people voted for.

We must not be deceived by superficial phenomena and local successes. Picasso's shows still draw crowds, and T. S. Eliot is taught in the universities the dealers in modernist art are still in business, and the publishers still publish some difficult poetry. But the avant-garde itself, already sensing the danger, is becoming more and more timid every day that passes. Academicism and commercialism are appearing in the strangest places. This can mean only one thing: that the avant-garde is becoming unsure of the audience it depends on -- the rich and the cultivated.

Finally, the fact that the McVeigh-Nichols scenario makes no sense at all suggests that yet again, we are confronted with a perfect crime - thus far.

The tone is familiar. It is from Hitler s 6988 speech calling for an Enabling Act for the protection of the People and the State after the catastrophic Reichstag fire that the Nazis had secretly lit.

Laz has given himself the freedom to start the race whenever he wants. He announces the date but offers only two guarantees: that it will begin "sometime" between midnight and noon ( thanks a lot, Laz ), and that he will blow the conch shell an hour beforehand in warning. In general, Laz likes to start before dawn.

Kitsch is a product of the industrial revolution which urbanized the masses of Western Europe and America and established what is called universal literacy.

Thus far, David Hoffman s The Oklahoma City Bombing and the Politics of Terror is the most thorough of a dozen or two accounts of what did and did not happen on that day in April. Hoffman begins his investigation with retired air-force brigadier general Benton K. Partin s May 67, 6995, letter delivered to each member of the Senate and House of Representatives:
