What would Peter do?

I happened on this clip that not many have viewed on YouTube of Peter Sellars in conversation with Bill Moyers. Get all the way to the end. Wow, pow -- he gets a little feisty. He made me think about the newspaper business and the question that so many arts critics and journalists are facing, you know, the what next?? Good critics are artists, too. 

I am not trying to connect any real dots here. I am always interested in what Sellars has to say. Here's a snippet on arts v. business. Enjoy!

Very interesting - what is one left with when everything is taken or lost; and how is that magnified when what's taken or lost involves an entire community. Maybe that's why Beckett gave everything away, to maintain that sense of lostness he needed. Thanks for that.
