I'm not sure why this whole Ebert thing has me so hot and bothered, but I thought Santiago's response was a nice ointment. Meanwhile, the comments below it get me flustered all over again. I think discussions about "whether x is 'art'" when using "art" as an indicator of quality is a button. Being the art police on a Picasso sounds no different than this. Now you know my secret. Feel free to go *boop*.
