Grovel Before Us

An impressionable New Criterion intern learns what it is like to work for TDR alumni James Panero ’98 and Stefan Beck ’04:

“File these press clippings!” the seersuckered Mr. Panero commands. “Update the website! Polish the bust of Hilton Kramer! You will KNEEL when Roger Kimball speaks to you!” “Actually, he prefers grovelling,” Dawn Steeves chimes in, ever helpful.

Via Armavirumque.

Update: The intern in question, Andrew Cusack, edits a monthly newspaper at St. Andrew’s University in Scotland. The paper regularly runs a feature titled “Imperial and Colonial Report.”
