I happen to greatly enjoy a large proportion of Sonny's work, precisely 
because it isn't pretentious attempted Great Art,  but rather documents, 
and with obvious affection, the beauty he sees around him, both in the place 
and in the people, including many of the everyday-but-special moments we all 
treasure, but seldom manage to capture, or at least to capture as well as 
Even if I didn't care for his work, though, I just can't understand what 
purpose is served by engaging in bitter, ad hominem attacks like this.

"Get a grip!" is the right admonition, but to the wrong person.
