LILEKS HAS A BEE IN HIS BONNET. Several, actually. It's a good one, today. Well, they're all good ones -- it's an especially good one.
UPDATE: Max Sawicky responds to some comments by Lileks. What's interesting is that I hadn't recognized how much Sawicky agrees with Steven Den Beste on the nature of the problem, as opposed to the appropriate remedy. I'd be interested in hearing more on the latter.
