Quote of the day

Kathleen Parker:
[T]rying to kill a great book because a 50-year-old literary character doesn't measure up to modern critics' idea of heroism is a sin.

Amen.

Oh hell fire! The condescension of posterity (E. P. Thompson) is not a sin.

Isn’t ‘stupid’ (with appropriate adjective) enough?

I quibble because it’s Monday – and I hated the book.
