An attack as venomous as Glenn Dixon’s (Beneath Contempt, 3/14) calls into question not the integrity of the art critiqued, but the state of mind of the critic.

Dixon’s article on Alexandria’s Torpedo Factory Arts Center reeks not of chic editorial critique, but of a particularly nasty kind of envy.

What a pity to lose all credibility in so fell a swoop.
