I understand some folks have been trouble submitting comments. This is because the blog was set to receive comments only from registered Google users (blogspot is part of their empire), probably so that Google could collect demographic information on its web surfers. As an new inexperienced blogger I didn't realize this was the default mode. I've now corrected it and the blog should receive comments anonymously. So both of my regular readers should now feel free to comment. I'll get the ball rolling by saying something preposterous: Walker Evans was a hack. Comments?
