  •  No, I don't like Lewis. (3+ / 0-)

    I cannot abide didactic writers of any stripe. Show your point and shut up about the preaching.

    But of course Lewis is far better than Dan Brown. My local shoe repairman is far better than Dan Brown.

    Paper bag: meet Dan Brown. He couldn't write his way outta ya.

    English usage is sometimes more than mere taste, judgment and education - sometimes it's sheer luck, like getting across the street. E. B. White
