thoughtful reply to David Brooks's unthoughtful rant-yelled-from-porch-at-passing-teenagers of last Sunday's New York Times.
BETWEEN NEAL AND STEVEN JOHNSON, I think the discrediting of Brooks's book-cover-judgment and unprovoked attack upon Neal's son's unpretentious name is complete, so I will add no further comment other than to ask...
DID DAVID BROOKS ACTUALLY USE THE TERM "jump the shark?" I am afraid to go back and look, for fear it will cause my eyes to burn up in their sockets and 1000 stars across the galaxy to instantly collapse.
AND THAT IS NOT HOW I WANT TO SPEND MY DAY

That is all.
