New York Magazine Weighs In

It's likely that very few of the readers of this website actually read New York Magazine. Why would they? ... its days of Tom Wolfe inspired creative fervor are long, long, gone. Nevertheless, this week's issue contains a cover story on the upcoming RNC protests; odds are, its the most comprehensive coverage of the RNC thus far.

The cover of the issue is ridiculous (it looks like they got Kid Rock to pose for their photographer.) And of course, the article tosses out the usual activist cliches (the first page of the story, in fact, is all about consensus process. ho, hum. skip to page 2.) Nevertheless, there's a ton of information here, much of it fascinating, all of it quite useful. It even got us a little excited.

Of course, there's the requisite second story about how the police are preparing. Flash: they're more worried about terrorists than they are about protesters. Although I imagine the NYPD means that in an insulting way (“The demonstrators are kind of self-deluded, thinking that they’re the primary focus of our concern and planning,”) its good to know that New York's finest doesn't see a group of protesters who have almost never injured a single person as as big a threat as homicidal terrorists.

The author of the article on the protesters is Logan Hill. Oddly enough, it seems most of his work thus far for New York has been film and music reviews. Craig Horowitz, author of the cop story, has written about the police, anti-semitism, and Israel, among other things.

Hello RNC Watch,

I'm Kid Rock, or at least that's how you described me in your article about New York Magazine. I can see why you guys might think the cover goofy, and the headline was typical, conservative New York Magazine, but the fact is, it was my image that got the movement on the cover. (I know for a fact they were initally going for a different story). Yes, I was different looking, but I was also thinking in the visual language of the media. All right, so maybe the headline wasn't so hot, but everyone seeing that on a stand is going to see opposition to Bush, as well as a person willing to step up to current conservatism and fear culture, and take a risk of expressing himself. My revelers of Greene Dragon will be doing all sorts of media/street theater stunts as colonial/Burning-Man patriots to celebrate our American Revel-ution from George II. I hope you might see us in a more favorable light next time, even if we don't fit into definitions of traditional politics. It stings to get sucker-punched by you're own people. We are supposed to be in this together after all.

Jonny America
