These changes will be ``additive,'' and won't detract from coverage of other subjects, Raines said.
Yeah. And prices won't rise in the next 25 years, either.

I don't mean to be a fuddy duddy and say there shouldn't be any coverage of pop culture, or less of it. But when I saw that story on the front page, I thought, this is too much.

The problem, of course, is that it will not be additive. They will do readers surveys, and more people will read about Britney than about opera or ballet or classical music. And so they will get more articles about Britney, or whoever is hot that month, because, after all, it's a business.

Pop culture is now "art" for some generations, which is why we see ballet companies advertising dancers on rooftops now

Parenthetically, I think Mitchell is being a wee bit unfair to Madonna. There's always been room for the untalented in rock music, but Madonna didn't start that (and even if you don't like her, she does have some talent). I'm not sure I wouldn't prefer "La Isla Bonita" to one of those Sensitive ditties that Joni used to favor us with about her awful ex-husband, et cetera.....

But NYCB has sent dancers to Sally Jessy and now this year it's the Angelina Ballerina float in the Macy's parade.
Maybe next year they'll have the Peter Martins balloon , being that he's a NY landmark and all.

No. she's not. She is lovely on her own, talented and highly intelligent.....
I say Brava to Angelina Ballerina....she is quite fun, and certainly an improvement on Barbie's Nutcracker of last year.....

BUT she gets the credit for discovering voguing and making the rest of us know about that fascinating undergrouand dance form.... For those of you who haven't heard of it, the documentary film "Paris is Burning" is a good source.....
