"It seems to me that to organize on the basis of feeding people or righting social injustice and all that is very valuable. But to rally people around the idea of modernism, modernity, or something is simply silly. I mean, I don't know what kind of a cause that is, to be up to date. I think it ultimately leads to fashion and snobbery and I'm against it."

Haunted By A Ghostley Presence
No idea where this came from, I doubt I've thought about it for more than forty or more years, but here it is The Boston Beguine as sung by Alice Ghostely in New Faces of 1952 (I believe)
That Boston, at least the part about suppressing books, has been dead for about as long as that. Now, please, Alice, stop haunting me.
