Learning to enjoy meat and potatoes art.

By Ben Fulton
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Aesthetes snigger. Academics chuckle. In fact, there’s all sorts of condescending chatter that erupts whenever people—cultured people—discuss traditional, representational art. It ignores the psychic tensions bequeathed to us by Freud....

By Ben Fulton
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Chess power Susan Polgar could easily talk, or outright brag, about her legacy as the No. 1 ranked woman player in the world. She could brag, or outright boast, about her record as a four-time World Champion and five-time Olympic Champion. She could boast,...

Bard and Soul

By Ben Fulton
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Although politics is full of drama, and drama can be full of politics, is it really so smart to mix the two? We should all remember how peeved Sen. Orrin Hatch became after his cameo in Traffic. Closer to home, however, more politicians are giving the...

By Ben Fulton
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - The years 1954 and 2002 couldn’t be more different. Back then, the U.S. Supreme Court voted to end racial segregation in public schools, while the French were poised to lose their colonial grip on Vietnam and eventually hand us a brand new conflict,...

Fulton’s Quarter Column of Post-Election Bile

By Ben Fulton
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Oh, what we wouldn’t give to have Utah in the eye of the political storm. Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire, Missouri and Minnesota voters feel the texture of politics at white-heat intensity. These are the “key states.” You know, places...

Fulton’s Quarter Column of “Mitland” Massachusetts

By Ben Fulton
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - As Sen. Bob Bennett reminded us at his Hinckley Institute of Politics lecture last week, politics has precious little to do with real issues. Instead, said Bob, it hinges on, well, sex appeal. A voter must “like” the candidate. If that’s...
