by Philip Baruth

“This whole controversy is a tempest in a Vermont-shaped teapot. No, your band that plays regular gigs at Franny O’s isn’t going to get a major record deal and no, the film you shot in your parents’ basement isn’t going to get into Sundance and no, your libel suit against a blog isn’t going to get to the Supreme Court.”

What he said.
