i have to agree with the bull that the art world is about, but seriously, ms menconi, you can't write- you have a serious defecit when it comes to using words beyond what a sixth grader can produce. wow. who the hell hired you? must have been another genius such as yourself. i understand the need to write to appeal to your "base readers" as you put it, but seriously, there is a difference between writing well (and not academically) and writing poorly. learn this difference. you need too.
please please please read some more sophisticated text than an US weekly magazine, maybe it will rub off on you.
so sad you get paid for being completely inarticulate
