In her most recent posting regarding the Center for the Study of Popular
Culture, Marilyn Robinson wrote:

I believe that Mr. Jarvik's organization is based in Santa Monica. David
Horowitz is one of the organization's theoretical guru's. Mr. Horowitz (for
those of you that remember)  is a reconstructed 60's radical who had some
type of right-wing epiphany during the course of the Reagan years. In a
more serious vein, check-out the depth of of his conversion in "Destructive
Generation: second thoughts about the sixties" and then go back  to the
"Free World Colossus."
Mr. Jarvik has previously stated: < Especially for film and television
studies, don't Nick at Nite and AMC do a better job than PBS?>
I find this to be an interesting analogy akin to comparing the tastiness of
certain vegetables with the flavor of fruits.
Like Ms. Robinson, I too would like a more in depth description of the
goals of Mr. Jarvik's organization or perhaps he could simply define the
acceptable parameters of public discourse in a democractic society.
