An artless act

A standing ovation please for Age columnist Michael Shmith for his commentary http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/society-and-culture/culture-in-eclipse-at-the-herald-sun-20100514-v4en.html on events at the Herald Sun. While Shmith, in his role as arts commentator and especially critic, tends to have a somewhat too-cosy relationship with those he writes about, he is certainly on the money with these words. This country’s infernal preoccupation with sports, the trivial and the mundane is turning us into a cultural desert and impoverishing future generations who already believe talent consists of mumbling into a microphone stuck halfway down one’s throat.
