    Poetry Project - 'Ginsberg and Friends' at Sotheby's

    If Allen Ginsberg were alive today, he probably would be busy writing anti-Giuliani polemics and thinking back to the day in 1957 when the courts unbanned his famous 'howl.' But he's dead, and his Levi's jacket, his meditation beads, his Medic-alert ...

    Papal Pandering - Rudy Dons Miter In Search of Upstate Canonization

    This Sunday, the mayor was on three morning network talk shows insisting that his war on the Brooklyn Museum was a "matter of principle." The proof of his apolitical highmindedness, declared Rudy Giuliani, was that he was pushing ahead despite a Dail...

    Watershed Fallout - Could the Probe of a Top Eco Cop Affect New York's Senate Race?

    'Hide it in the filing cabinet and bury it in the file of monthly vehicle reports. Fuck him! He's not getting it; it's my plaque, and it belongs to me. . . . I'm not giving it up.' That outburst, attributed to a whistleblowing top cop in the troubled...

    Running Scared - The Bad Apple Defense and Other Symptoms of Spinelessness in the Art World

    Dung Jury - Jockeying for Position in the Culture Wars

    For the record: Charles Saatchi is not Rudolph Giuliani's campaign manager. The advertising mogul, who got Margaret Thatcher elected prime minister, seemed to be giving Giuliani's Senatorial bid a similar boost with a well-timed controversy by loanin...

    The Vice Man Cometh - New York's Art War Archives

    Here's a scene to gladden Rudy Giuliani's heart: As the curtain rises on an Off-Broadway show, the NYPD swoops down, arresting the cast, producer, house manager, and even the concessionaire. The company is hauled into night court, charged with "disor...
