DAILY Arts  March 31, 2015, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Oh, that wild, strange, and relentlessly delightful novel of lunacy and logic! It was first published in 1865, the brainchild of one Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a multitalented man of letters and photography better known to the living world as Lewis Carroll. Over the past 150 years, the book's narrative course and structure, characters and imagery have been – as Wikipedia rightfully asserts – enormously influential in both popular culture and literature...."

Is the Constitution Just a Screenplay?
Columns  January 21, 1999, by Michael Ventura
"...Bush to Bill Bradley, crows their passion for "a free market economy." That's a code phrase meaning: Our biggest corporations can do whatever they want, anywhere they want, with minimal interference from government or citizens.

In his latest book, Conscious Capitalism, he credits a stern talking to from an animal activist for turning him finally away from meat and all its byproducts; and like many of his kind – retail entrepreneurs as well as food enthusiasts – he’s a proselytizer, not content to rest on his own considerable accomplishments as a supermarketer, but determined to bring his spiritual enlightenment to the world...."

"..."Whether Ruchama [the main character of his story "The Wig"] is wrestling with wearing a wig or not affects a reader that's completely separate from that [Orthodox] world in one way, whereas it might really be an issue to someone else about their own [life]," he says. "It can be in general, say, an issue about a woman's freedom or freedom in general or individual choices of modesty or vanity or beauty, but if you go into a specific community, it can be like, "Someone's wearing a wig, and should I wear it? Or is this guy saying that I shouldn't?' On that level I'm not prescribing anything, but when I show up in certain places, that seems to be on the table."..."

"...Nevertheless, we gamely muddle along in a media landscape that nobody – from The New York Times on down to the surviving neighborhood listservs – knows fully how to accommodate with "content," nor quite how to effectively "monetize." Plenty of our current readers are default "information wants to be free" folks – understandable enough when you've got the whole world in your smartphone pocket – but from this end of the telescope we're regularly reminded that reporters and writers and artists and production staff and ad salespeople need to eat, clothe themselves, and raise families, too...."
