    The Digital Rights Dilemma - National Writers Union Wins Landmark Decision for Freelancers. Maybe.

    Like fly fishing or, say, 'Star Trek,' intellectual property law is a subject about which one either cares a great deal or not at all. But even if you normally don't give a whit, last week's ruling in Tasini v. The New York Times deserves your attent...

    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...

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

    Dung Jury - Jockeying for Position in the Culture Wars

    Man and Ape - A Controversy Evolves

    This image isn't of an artwork from "Sensation," the "controversial" Brooklyn Museum show, although it could be. The stooped and hairy mannequins, with their ridged brows and full-body five o'clock shadow, might easily be by, say, Jake and Dinos Chap...
