Gopnik said,
"Norman Rockwell would get the boot... if I believed in pulling ***everything that I'm offended by:***
I can't stand the view of America that [Rockwell] presents..."

I wonder if Gopnik even bothers to look at the art he abhors so much.

Hasn't Gopnik ever seen Rockwell's painting, "The Problem We All Live With"?


Hasn't Gopnik ever seen Rockwell's series, "The Four Freedoms," which was inspired by a speech by FDR?
