Green shoots

Green shoots are a-sproutin' in what's been a bleakly recessionary year for me as far as paid journalism goes; I'm pleased to announce a new Momus column, a regular interview slot on the Art in America website. My first interviewee is Michael Portnoy; here's the piece, which contains the strangest joke I've ever heard:

It's probably just me aging, but aren't editors looking younger, fresher-faced and cuter every year? This is my new boss at Art in America; he's like a cross between Tintin and Joe Howe! Neat style: fresh as a daisy, green as a shoot!
