What did you think of Saltz’ gibe at AFC? I for one condemn the actions of Blackwater in Iraq. It would not surprise me if this “artist” is related to the Amway people.

“In a post headlined “Richard Prince Sucks,” blogger Paddy Johnson opined that my Prince article “really annoyed me” (now, there’s some good art criticism) because I’d found “Prince’s blatant sexism worth championing.” I was championing sexism? Funny, I thought I was trying to make a case for the work (and in doing so, compared him several times to Nabokov’s pedophile).”

I don’t understand what he’s trying to criticize. Is it supposed to be that the combination of “Richard Prince Sucks” and “really annoyed me” is dumb? Why would anybody think the title and a fraction of a quote represents any of the article? Is it that he thinks one of those choices is dumb? Why not specify? Or does he think I mis-understood his article: he wasn’t championing sexism because he compared Prince to Nabokov’s pedophile. The comparison itself is a case for the work. I mean, none of this even makes sense.
