Well, I've caught a lot of carp, and I make the best garlic dough ball for catching carp you ever saw. Never did think about spanking on of them after I caught it, though. Just catching it seemed punishment enough.

I don't agree with the rant I read when I followed the link. Even if we all are carp in the same pond, we do not all have teh same level of talent, the same level on intelligence, the same level of dedication, or the same work ethic. None of us are fish, but even some fish are smarter than others.

I don't like elitism, either, but the opposite is just as bad, usually worse, and never the least bit realistic. We can't be good at everything, no matter how hard we try. We can't all have talent in the same area, no matter how much we wish it were otherwise. There is no bias with MFA holders, but they do have a higher level of talent than most, and a higher level of dedication, or they would not have an MFA.

"Art" is too often a word used when there is no talent. It's a justification for lack of quality. I created it, it's art, so it must be good. No, probably not. Chances are at least a hundred to one that it's lousy.

"Subjective" is even worse. It's a word people use when they want to say, "My writing is as good as your", even if it reads like an illiterate third grader wrote it. Get "subjective" out of your head. Only good is subjective. Bad stinks on ice, and everyone can smell it except the writer who wrote it, and a few of his closest friends, who probably plug their noses with cotton before reading his work. You can yell "subjective" all day long, but very little in the writing world is subjective. Whether King is better than Koontz is subjective. The fact that ninety-nine percent who try writing have no talent, and never will write anything worth reading, is purely objective.

And you don't pay for your stories, which means you think very little of all the "artists" out there, of the work the sweat to create, even though you have no magazine without them. You also think very little of your chances of actually making anyone buy your magazine. The reason you started this magazine is apparently because you think "artists" should be more than happy to work for free, to let you pay every other cost associated with a magazine, and there are always costs, but not pay them. I may be an "artist", but this does not mean I don't value myself and my work, or that I'll just give it away because someone claims not to believe in elitism.

James, I'm pretty sure "spank the carp" is a euphemism for something your mother said would make you go blind.
