Elliot S(!) Maggin is lamer than a one-armed grave digger. the guy actually used an exclamation point in his pen name. T
Glad the Merc did this article. Well written too. I'm not keen on the "get in your face" canvasser technique, I've stopped for the "Could I talk to you about X?" approach twice, and ended up signing up for one. The "How are you today?" is a bad approach, because , let's face it, you don't care how I am today...you need me to commit, so honesty is a worthy approach. The one canvasser who deserves the "Nice try but you're an asshat"award goes to some lady in Sellwood who's pitch was something like "So, can you sleep at night knowing that ____" to which I said "No, but thanks for the insomnia" and as I walked away started insulting me. So, by implication, she, who knows nothing about me, my income, my own charitable giving...she gets to be on the street and say what she wants? Yes, she does, cuz that's the first Ammendment. And because of that same law, I'm calling her an asshat. Thank you.

Jake, with that kind of attitude, I'm thinking Arkham Asylum's missing a patient...
And isn't Edward "I'll sit this one out" Norton kicking himself for NOT playing banner...remember that debacle? That guy really blew it, as if the movie should have been called "Bruce Banner and the Avengers..."
How is this possible in this city that has so many artists? DO we just import them from places that actually recognize the arts? And losing dance is like losing lunch! What kind of culture doesn't promote dance? A friggin' boring one. My condolensces to the mentioned instructors, the message seems to be "Don't become an arts educator".
