The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

30 September 2004

A first time for everything

Now here's something you don't see every day: a Glenn Reynolds article gets fisked.

Then again, the piece in question was in the Guardian, meaning just on general principle it gets extra attention from the pajama-clad panjandrums of blogdom.

Me, I never tried to fisk anything from the Insta-Man. It would always come out something like this:

Heh.

I assume that he's been waiting to exhale; if so, he probably needn't have held his breath. There's a reason this has been largely ignored by the dead-tree media up to now: it isn't anywhere near the divisive issue he seems to think it is.

Indeed.

Despite this, he assents. But is there anything more exasperating than a blog post whose sole purpose is to agree with another blog post? I mean, really.

Now I'm going to go put on a hat so I can tip it to The Shape of Days.

Forgot that. (Geez, I thought I'd covered most of the shtick.)
