Hey! I resemble that remark! (we pop cultie scholars/fans only flog the
mechanical hobby-horses in the mall, anyway!)
As a long-standing lurker on this list, I can testify most of what gets
discussed is borne of one agenda or another (sometimes an anti-pop
culture agenda). Same logics here, merely different vocabularies.
As self-professed surveyors and celebrants of the "human barnyard," we
might even take some pleasure in Chicken Little's game. I, for one,
have been amused.
