THE GUARDIAN OF STUPIDITY: Excellent essay by Steve Den Beste on the moral equivalency of The Guardian, and an open letter to it written by the usual American suspects, including: Chomsky, Said, Ed Asner (of course!) and unfortunately, Ossie Davis, an actor whose performances I’ve always enjoyed. (As is Asner himself, who is one of my favorite actors–I loved him in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant, and a host of other roles.)
I realize acting and logic are usually mutually unrelated terms, but I really question the ability of all of the folks on that list to reason. As to why, read Den Beste’s essay.
