Now I will go see Cheim & Reid's summer group show, "I am the walrus,", which looks at contemporary artists' use of clowns.
My advice: read the print version sometimes, too.
[Update: A reader suggests the C&R show's so bad, I should send away the clowns. I got sidetracked anyway, so I have no idea of my own. (!!)]
