A great quote from Roger "nimble minded" Kimball:
"Our avant-gardist artistic establishment preens itself on being 'transgressive,' 'challenging,' 'provacative,' etc. But it prefers to exercise its anti-bourgois animus within the coddled purlieus of bourgeois security."
Kimball is the editor of The New Criterion and is author of many books including The Rape of the Masters: How Politcal Correctness Sabotages Art, Arts Prospect: The Challenge of Tradition in an Age of Celebrity, and The Long March: How the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s Changed America. TNC is, according to the Times Literary Supplement, "is probably more consistently worth reading than any other magazine in English."
