Codrescu on Kabacoff (?) and company.

The Penny Post:
"Is it all gone? For the time being, yes. But Mr. G will survive, he’ll emerge from this stronger: New Orleans will be a smaller city, the better to accommodate the myths of “culture.” A whole lot of inconvenient culture will be gone, along with poor artists and the just-plain poor. Without the embarrassment of reality, there is no telling what the arts might be worth."
I don't think there's any doubt about who he means by "Mr. G."
