The Lure of the Local

I was busily working the other day when the phone rang. A young woman's voice seemed surprised to have connected with Billy X. I assured her it was indeed I. She told me "they" were studying me and identified herself as a student from MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design) and asked to put me on speaker. I said okay and we had some fun, but I wondered why me and why now? Another voice said they were reading "The Lure of the Local" by Lucy Lippard. I had no idea I was included in that book. Funny how you discover these things.
