Christopher Knight, 'North Pond Hermit,' To Be Freed After Pleading Guilty To Burglary, Theft
Huffington Post - over 3 years
AUGUSTA, Maine -- AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — A man who lived nearly three decades in the Maine woods, surviving brutal winters, breaking into houses and avoiding detection by police and neighbors now faces a big challenge: reintegrating into society. Christopher Knight, known as the North Pond Hermit, pleaded guilty Monday to 13 counts of burglary and theft and was admitted into a special court program that will allow him to be released from jail and live and work in the community under the supervision of court officials. Police have said the 47-year-old Knight may have been responsible for as many as 1,000 burglaries for food, clothing, camping and cooking gear from homes and camps while living in the woods of the central Maine town of Rome for 27 years before his arrest in April. Walter McKee, Knight's lawyer, said he believes Knight is ready to be free, but acknowledged that he likely faces big hurdles after spending so many years isolated from the community. "A lot has changed in 3 ...

Hermit Says Glasses Are the Only Thing He Owns
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
AUGUSTA, Maine -- A man who lived as a hermit in the woods of central Maine for nearly three decades has told authorities his eyeglasses are the only thing he owns. Christopher Knight, known to locals as the North Pond Hermit, appeared in Kennebec County Superior Court on Tuesday for a status conference on his burglary case. The 47-year-old Knight was arrested in April when, authorities say, he tripped a surveillance sensor while stealing food from a camp. Investigators say he may be responsible for 1,000 burglaries in the years he lived in the woods. The Kennebec Journal reports (http://bit.ly/10xNs4x) Knight wore wire-rimmed glasses instead of the thick, black-framed ones he had when he was arrested. He said they are the only thing he owns and that he had them since the late 1980s. ___ Information from: Kennebec Journal, http://www.kjonline.com/

Fox News - almost 4 years
Former classmates of a man who kept hidden in the woods of Maine for 27 years and who's known as the North Pond Hermit remember him as quiet, smart and nerdy.

Knight is charged with stealing food from a camp along North Pond in Rome, a town of about 1,000 residents. He's jailed in Augusta and has refused requests for interviews.

Maine cottage owners relieved by hermit's capture
Fox News - almost 4 years
Cottage owners on a central Maine lake are expressing relief that a so-called hermit is no longer at large. Law enforcement officials say 47-year-old Christopher Knight lived in the woods for 27 years and may be responsible for more than 1,000 burglaries of food and other items. Authorities arrested Knight last week after he tripped a surveillance sensor while allegedly stealing food from a camp for special needs people. Authorities are sorting through Knight's lair in the woods, but the land's owner is turning away others who have hiked there to get a look. Among them was Frank Ten Broeck, a retired New Jersey police official who has a cottage nearby. Ten Broeck says it's "mind-boggling" that Knight could survive through Maine's severe winters for so long.

Edward Goldman: When Art Critics Get It Wrong
Huffington Post - about 4 years
It takes a certain amount of courage for an art critic to admit that he or she has made a mistake. But to do so in public? Why would anyone want to reveal their professional shortcomings in such a fashion? There is a rather interesting article in the current issue of ARTnews magazine in which a few of the country's leading art critics say mea culpa for flip-flopping on their critical assessments. Peter Schjeldahl, longtime critic for The New Yorker, made a complete about-face on Gustav Klimt's iconic portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. When he saw this glimmering golden beauty for the first time, he called it "transcendent in its cunning way." Several years later, however, he dismissed it as a "largish, flattish bauble." If you want my opinion, I think Mr. Schjeldahl needs to have his head examined. But, I suppose it's his critical prerogative to be wrong this one time. In a reverse case of initial rejection that later turned to admiration, Village Voice critic Kim Lev ...

Eli Broad’s inverted vision
Reuters.com - over 4 years
Many years ago, Eli Broad was the very model of the modern enlightened art collector. In December 1988, he opened a 22,600-square-foot “lending library for art”, complete with soaring rhetoric: Broad believes that the new facility is part of the solution to museums’ financial woes and a pointed example of how a collector can demonstrate social responsibility… In the first place, he said, this center is not a museum. It’s a lending library. “We never wanted to have a building with our name on it that would compete with museums,” he said. “We loan works to museums and make them available to scholars.” Broad explained that his foundation had already loaned art to more than 100 different museums, and that at any given point in time a good third of his collection was on loan somewhere. You don’t need to have your own museum for the public to see your art; in fact, if you do it the other way, by lending out your art to other museums, everybody wins. More of your collection can be sho ...
