Fisking Can Be Fun
No, I'm not going to give someone a well-deserved and long-overdue fisking here. (it's not my style, and I'm not particularly good at it.) But that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the results when someone else does it...
I read this a while back, not long after it was published. It made me scratch my head -- why should I care, particularly, who novelists are voting for? Novelists don't have any specific claim to wisdom. About all I can say for them is that, whatever thoughts they are thinking, moronic or otherwise, those thoughts are likely to be expressed well.
Or so I thought. Along comes Sofia, with the above-mentioned well-deserved and long-overdue fisking. Check it out!
