I seem to have been angered by the article from the first few paras. I'm sure Clark may be doing interesting things; but they can't be holding that the mind extends beyond the skull/skin, or that he engages with sciences, or the stuff about tools, none of which are remotely uncommon views or practices.

Whatever the New Yorker paid Anthony Lane to go to England and to report on The Wedding was worth every penny.

their write up of the power trip show from a few weeks ago is as stupid as anything theyve published.

Completely stuck on paragraph three of Rebecca Mead's article on the Faroe Islands, in which she seems to suggest lumber is necessary to the manufacture of salt.

The more I read it the less I understand it. Am I missing something?

The cod skin and salted gannet sandwich sounds scrumptious.

There must be enough pieces now for a "New Yorker Book of Weird Chefs in Weird Places."

I think the fact that Koks is situated on a bog and surrounded by mud confirms Peter Cook as a seer. He would also have enjoyed the name.

Bobby in Company is not "love starved." ("Goings On..."). Everybody loves Bobby. That's kind of underlined. He has commitment problems.

Thank you. Can explain Sweeney Todd on request.

Meanwhile, same issue. I guess Seabrook's Talk piece about Richard Thompson was edited, but why the rather nasty exchange about Spalding Gray at the end? How many tutors did he have on the esoteric topic of combining bagpipe drone with jazz harmonics (Les Paul "among others")? And an informed editor might have charitably excised the comment about "brand names" in British popular music lyrics, knowing that British radio would have instantly banned the songs. That's why the Kinks sing about "cherry cola" in "Lola," and why "Kodachrome" got no airplay in the U.K. despite S&G's immense popularity.

And while the lyrics of the opening track may be packed with "menace and mystery," my own awe is lessened by the fact that he's playing dollar and a shave, two bits.

The archival issue just arrived. Observations:

1. the articles read as well now as they must have then. 

2. have the cartoons gotten weak recently, or is it just me? 


Summarizing, then, we assume that relational information is not subject to a corpus of utterance tokens upon which conformity has been defined by the paired utterance test.
