the socially distant

  1. I’ve always wondered about museums having corporate sponsors for shows featuring artists who were very anti-corporate/anti-capitalist. One of the museums in San Francisco had an exhibition of works by K├Ąthe Kollwitz; its corporate sponsor was a tech company that had just gotten lambasted for refusing to give its workers more than a week of parental leave, and most specifically, leave for female employees who were experiencing difficult pregnancies. I thought how Kollwitz would have loved to scorch them on paper.

    The gala evening… etc. is a direct steal. Every time I use it I wonder if the author knowingly wrote it to be as funny as it is and how many others caught the humor in its original setting, Vanity Fair magazine.
