Cultural identity -- an afterthought

Yesterday I wrote about cultural identity and speculated that a large portion of the United States -- the conservative, unsophisticated, flyover-state folks -- is suspicious and disapproving of mainstream High Art.  If you still need convincing, here's Exhibit A, from this week's Apartment 3-G comic.

Notice how the guy not embarrassed but proud of being a troglodyte.  That's what I was talking about yesterday.

But here's the best part -- in the next day's comic, it turns out that the art ignoramus is the governor.  I wonder if he will be persuaded that Pollock is art by the end of the adventure.
