The Stuff of Genius?
It's always a tragedy when someone rejects God's greatest gift, even when there are extenuating circumstances, and it is ironic that those in the creative professions seem particularly vulnerable to doing so. While in no way gainsaying that tragedy, and freely conceding my knowledge of fashion is well-nigh zero, I wonder if the word genius" is appropriate to describe the designer Alexander McQueen, who hanged himself yesterday in London. The New York Post (where these pics came from) seems to think so, as did many of the man's admirers. Am I missing something?
