Irritations of the week

Normally I try not to fan the flames of that which irritates, but this week Camille Paglia ranting on about saving the canon was just too much. Who are these people and how do they hold those massive, inflated, heads up in the world? The other irritation is Martin Amis in the New Yorker. What the heck was that all about? If you're going to go imagining the last hours of one of the most notorious figures of our time, I would say IMAGINE. What a waste of ink "The Last Days of Muhammad Atta" was...and just to round out an irritating day, yesterday I missed the Etgar Keret/George Saunders reading because I thought it was today and planned on attending after the Ear Inn...Saunders and Keret at the same time?? That would have been heaven.
