  •  Excellent review! Unfortunately, Edward Said (4+ / 0-)

    is being published by the locally circulated Village Voice while Friedman is being published in the Times. We both know that says about the state of journalism in this country.

    •  Oh, I think that (2+ / 0-)

      Said did okay for himself (heh), although the fact that Friedman can, now almost a quarter of a century later, still be ladling out his inanities and still be held by some as a "very serious person" does point to a lamentable disjunction between academic scholarship and the form of pseudo-intellectualism that too often dominates op-ed pages.
