Note: these self-appointed guardians of culture aren't guarding shit.

Arthur Silber and I have very different tastes in our classical music--most music written between about 1750 and 1900 does nothing for me, and opera in particular does even less--but his complaints about the banality of the American high-cultural mainstream are utterly familiar to me, while his rant is utterly accurate and utterly wonderful.
