Quote of the Day

"The play, culled from Corrie's cursory attempt at understanding politics well beyond her capabilities, is a desert storm aswirl in sand that blinds and badgers but can't be grasped substantively. Rachel Corrie herself is the theatrical equivalent of a blogger bloated with self-righteousness, saturated with solipsistic sentiment logged on to lies and half-truths."

-Michael Elkin, of the Jewish Exponent, hitting multiple targets with one shot. His article--on "Jew as the 'fall guy' in the arts this autumn"--even tries to compare Corrie to Borat, somehow.

I love it. I love "saturated with solipsistic sentiment." Wish I had written that.

You think I'm kidding, but I am not. At all.
