what can contributors to The New Criterion and The New Republic have in common? They probably don't feel bad about the new news about Jeff Koons

One of the very few things writers from the two magazines seemed to have agreed on was they couldn't stand Jeff Koons.

From The New Republic

From The New Criterion

which is now behind a paywall.  Meh.  Well, it didn't used to be.

it's actually some kind of reprint/linkathon to this

So it's unlikely any of those authors feel bad for Koons now that it's been reported Koons has been convicted of plagiarism.

It's also been reported a few other places but we'll stick with this one for now.
