In her review of Ryan McGinness' art exhibition Aesthetic Comfort ('Dark and Dizzy,' issue of Nov. 12), Laura James states that the artist has created something "entirely original." I've been a great fan of McGinness' work since I first saw it at the Contemporary Arts Center's Beautiful Losers.

Having seen the big Andy Warhol Retrospective show in Los Angeles in 2002, I had thought I was Warholed out. I had seen plenty of his invigorating, breakthrough pop art of the early 1960s. But enough.

It was supposedly the Duchess of Bedford who first introduced the world to afternoon tea. One of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, the Duchess was afflicted - so many were back then - with a 'sinking feeling' everyday at 4 o'clock. So she asked her servants to begin sneaking a pot of tea and assorted breads to her room.

It begins with a strange and stiff little figure from the 17th century, "Robert Gibbs at 4-1/2 Years." Young Gibbs appears as a miniature adult, in the fashion of the times, holding gloves as his father might, painted by an artist known only as the Freake-Gibbs painter.

Josh Sneed, to borrow a line from a famous dead comedian, doesn't get any respect. Locally, anyway. The comedian from Saint Bernard has two Comedy Central specials under his belt.

Friday at the Southgate House. Listening to the new self-titled long-player from Cincinnati's Cari Clara, I had a thought that I've had for about 15 years now. Eric Diedrichs (CC's brain trust) should be famous. Not because he's a pretty guy (though he is) and not because he has a great onstage presence (he does).  

Stand Up for Teachers

What a difference to read a newspaper column about public schools that’s favor able to the staff, the core of the schools (“School Funding Fight in the Burbs,” issue of Sept. 10). Joe Wessels’ col umn was well written and informative. I’m the chairperson of the Fairfield Classroom Teachers Association negotiations team.
