Re “Here’s what I meant to say”—

Rutter’s perceptive putdown of excessive explanations reminds me that Modernism, now a hoary century old, justifies any/everything in its Gropian moods.

The Higher Goofy is an esthetic misdemeanor, whether in architecture or ballet. Methinks they explain too much about too little. Good art is its own explanation.

Unlike hard science, weak art too often gets an undeserved pass.
