Recently, we began receiving the New York Sun, I think as an add-on to our Wall Street Journal subscription. I’m not entirely sure. I mean, I do know that the owner of our company canceled our office subscription to the New York Times a few years ago because he, um, disagreed with its political agenda.
Anyway, I was reading the Arts+ section of the Sun at the lunchtable today when I discovered that the section’s editor is actually . . . my alter ego!
How else can we explain the page 18 & 19 spread of today’s paper featuring this double-whammy:
Mysticism in Youth â€“ Barbara Probst Solomon’s review of the early diaries of Jewish mystic & scholar Gershom Scholem
With Gasol, Lakers Now Look Unstoppable â€“ John Hollinger’s weekly power rankings of the NBA
Toss in a front-page piece on Louis I. Kahn’s travel sketches, and the only conclusion to draw is that my lack of sleep is merely a cover for Tyler Durden-like plot to redefine arts & leisure in my own demented image.
