Saddam fiddles as Tony burns

The monthly arts magazine New Critierion has posted a number of specially commissioned articles on its home page. One of the best is a piece by the British writer John Gross, “Saddam fiddles as Tony burns.”
The New Criterion also sponsors a good blog that it has titled Arma Virumque (“Arms and the man”), the opening words of Virgil’s epic poem, the Aeneid. If you scroll down on the blog, you can access a link to a chapter of Roger Kimball’s forthcoming book on the survival of art. The chapter is a hilarious account of Kimball’s visit to the Andy Warhol museum and includes a trenchant evaluation of Warhol’s…output. If you have any interest at all in the subject, don’t miss it.
