So Bernie, you're saying that Jeff Kreines would be impoverished as
an artist if he paid any attention to the audience? How exactly
would you then edit a documentary film while doing so?

Or are you trying to say something else: like trashing critics in
general? or Scott Macdonald in particular?

IF you answer this, are you then responding to a critic and facing
your own loss of artist creds (and perhaps vital fluids)?

I'll raise your Neitzche with an Oscar Wilde. Still in the game or
gonna fold?
