	Well now *that's* really rich. Post-modernism is a very curious
phenomena ... its a school of philosophy that actually has far far more
people critisizing it than there are people working in it. And the
criticisms it inspires are quite often humourously irrational - people
just *love* to take shots at it. And its blamed for all manner of current
social ills ... but I think that seeing it blamed for the disappearance of
New Age books from libraries has got to set some sort of new standard.
