Found this nice and fitting quote by Edwin Hooper in an issue of Supreme Magic’s “Magigram”:
WHAT’S WRONG WITH MAGIC? is a question continuously being asked in various magazines. We say NOTHING AT ALL ! — only the dried-up old fogies who make such remarks! MAGIC lives on ENTHUSIASM…something sometimes lacking in our present day and age. Give it a good dose of that…YOUR enthusiasm and it’s as alive and virile as ever it was.
By the way, this was written back in 1966…
