The world of magic: Looking for a new rabbit

That's the headline of this Toronto Star article which quotes Jay Sankey, Dan Trommater, Shawn Farquhar, David Acer and Murray Hatfield discussing the decline and relevance of contemporary magic.

What do you think?  Is Jay the only one who thinks that magic as we know it is doomed?

* While Chen no longer resides in Canada, in the summer of 2003, she was the subject of a four-page cover story in Canadian magazine, Saturday Night.  Since she was the first Canadian magician to be featured on the cover of a national magazine since the late Doug Henning, we'll still claim her as ours.
