    It must be nice to be so privileged and economically secure as to even contemplate going on strike from Jan. 1-April 9. Meanwhile, I’m trying to figure out how to pay my rent this month, and I just got back from getting groceries at the food pantry. I’ve got just enough time to eat some [...]

    I am surprised that with all the election coverage, I hadn’t heard about Prop. K until today.

    So says art critic Brian Sewell in the UK’s Independent: "The art market is not sexist," Mr Sewell said. "The likes of Bridget Riley and Louise Bourgeois are of the second and third rank. There has never been a first-rank woman artist. "Only men are capable of aesthetic greatness. Women make up 50 per cent or more of classes [...]
