Jerry Saltz as Grand Moff Tarkin

"If the art economy is as bad as it looks—if worse comes to worst—40 to 50 New York galleries will close. Around the same number of European galleries will, too. An art magazine will cease publishing. A major fair will call it quits—possibly the Armory Show, because so many dealers hate the conditions on the piers, or maybe Art Basel Miami Beach, because although it’s fun, it’s also ridiculous. Museums will cancel shows because they can’t raise funds. Art advisers will be out of work. Alternative spaces will become more important for shaping the discourse, although they’ll have a hard time making ends meet."

Everything is Peachy!

One can expect, given current events, that the electorate will vote not to give more power to the hawks, fat cats and yes-men (pictured above).
I am mentally preparing for the opposite to happen. Join me down the merry path of before-the-fact rationalization.

This link supports the rationalization that the moral fervor that the hawks whip up in the red states plays on a "first-draft" moral sensibility everyone is born with.

This link supports the rationalization that xenophobia and intolerance are part of a biological herding instinct.
