This review was most enlightening and written with the audience in mind. The way Charles Donelan connects women's artistic expression with both the societal boundaries of the early 20th century, and the modernist style made his review meaningful and cogent. I look forward to seeing the exhibit.

On Review: <em>The Declarations of Independents</em>

Compliments to Nick Welsh for the well-researched article. There certainly are plenty of people to blame for this incident (even if it's decided it's not an "incident" since no one was killed). Federal agencies and Santa Barbara agencies who didn't bother to come to meetings; the courts, PAAP itself for weasling out of oversight--when is that not a self-interested move?
As long as oil interests control politics (through "donations" to sympathetic senators and representatives) and as long as the public acquiesces to Big Oil and car industries' efforts to keep the status quo, this sort of thing--oil companies wiggling out of oversight, overseers failing to do their jobs, lack of funding for oversight--will keep happening.
It's only when there is the political and social will to change to renewable energy that we will see the end of oil spills and CO2 pollution.

Hi Michelle. Mum speaking. I love your alpaca article! You have such a graceful, funny, even compassionate way of writing. Ending the article with "Hummm" is absolutely perfect. I'm so glad I got to go there with you. Hummmm from me too.

I'd love to hear much more about this wondrous place, Patagonia. Hope we can see a lengthier version of your article, with photos. Thanks!

What a well-written and useful book review. I am probably one of those who thinks (knows) she is always, always right. For those rare occasions when I might be slightly wrong, only slightly, I suppose I should read this book to find out how to admit that without losing all hope of respect, while maintaining my right to be right as well. Thank you, Independent, for shining, as ever, the guiding light.
