Is it possible for an exhibition to fully coax forth the sources of a painter's compelling imagery? Can the mysterious soup of thought, feeling and accident that meld in making a work of art really be laid out? Can a show truly burrow inside an artist's head? The answer of course is no. Some things are finally impenetrable. Yet, a marvelously engaging exhibition that opened Sunday at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art comes as close as is likely possible to accomplishing that formidable feat.

You know how it is when you suddenly realize you've become stale and musty? That's the way I felt when I heard that KCBS Channel 2--in its relentless quest for credibility and integrity--had changed its news name to "Action News." Of course-- action!

The Emmy show was the most discourteous display of garbage from the so-called entertainment industry that has ever been thrust upon the viewing public. This was not the time nor place for partisan politics. Nor was it the stage for banishing "Major Dad"--a show that they obviously did not deem politically correct. The cultural elite have developed an oversized opinion of their power and influence. They feel that they are adored. I can assure them that they are not. The cultural elite have now become the cultural trash and should be afforded respect accordingly.
