On a similar note, the line that describes Kerr as having been "introduced to kabuki from a perspective, and with a depth, which few foreigners have" made me cringe. I'm cutting it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Drerp (talk • contribs) 17:12, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
You are most welcome to add the sharpest criticism to Alex Kerr you can find, as long as it's documented and properly framed, and it's presented as criticisms moved to Kerr by someone you name (NPOV). Wikipedia is not a soap box for your jeremiads against Kerr.
