You do make rock-solid points in the column, Nate. I'm more swayed by the conflict-of-interest arguments, though, than the seniority ones. (I can't imagine what Wynton, if I can single him out, possibly has left to do before he proves himself worthy.)

Still...I just did a piece on Dave Liebman for the November JazzTimes. He mentions that he's the NEA's first Baby Boomer honoree, and that he sees it as acknowledgement that his generation has finally reached maturity. I wish I'd asked him about the Marsalis family award in that light; now I'm dying to know what he thinks about it.
