A pull from the piece:
Writers obsessed with fame, money and power are systematically denied that imaginative vision. They instead become artisans working in a marketplace creating consumer goods. Their product becomes inevitably and often fatally narcissistic. New Orleans has traditionally afforded artists the opportunity to pursue marketplace-free goals and continues to do so. This is what attracted the singular imagination of Ned Sublette to the city that lured Clemens and Whitman, Faulkner and Williams into its magic crescent.
As well, the writer describes the last day of Treme's final season, which is only a half season of episodes, all the team got funding for from HBO. There will be no more after these 5 episodes air.
But hey! there's the solipsistic navel lint picking of Girls to console us. Ain't life just Grand O Ho Dee Ho Dough!
