Letters

And it keeps changing, too. I remember when the very mention of "disability" was a no-no; people weren't "disabled," but "differently abled." Then "physically challenged." The current "people with disabilities" is blessedly accurate, but it's hard for the "temporarily abled" to keep up.

As for "spectacle": All performing artists make spectacles of themselves; that's what they're for—to go past conventional limits and give us spectators something worth looking at and pondering.


GOOD ON BADU

To Ta-Nehisi Coates:

Your item on Erykah Badu's performance at S.O.B.'s was hilarious, refreshing, and exactly on point ["Cuz She's Cleva," The Sound of the City, February 5-11].

It's refreshing to read a concert review that delivers more than a critic's opinion. "Cuz She's Cleva" made me feel like I was jammin' right behind Badu's freshly picked 'fro.
