He is an actor from Vegas named Val Valentino and I personally have no issues with him. Overall I think it was good for the art to have magic in the public eye like that. He did really piss off the magic status quo - which is almost a good thing in my book.

Blackstone was the consummate professional. Set a very high standard in old school performance.

Burton is a fine performer of the classical tradition and I hope to see his act live some day.
