News at Eleven: Why would anyone pre-structure their opinions

or pre-restrict their reading? There are plenty of reasons, psychologically, to do this, but for me it was odd and I came to realize I was in an increasingly odd relation to that stuff. But I don't care. Not only do I not care, at this point I feel I am polemically eclectic. One responds to specific things and one doesn't have to apologize for it. I am not interested in the Stalinist policing of the boundaries of the avant-garde nor am I interested in the equally Stalinist policing of "verse." [--Maureen McLane]
