Jay Brooks has another terrific piece on his blog today. It's everything editorial prose ought to be: provocative, thoughtful, and reasoned. I'm not sure I agree with him, but that's beside the point. As I've said elsewhere (my one comment on the mini-furor over the Powells.com review of my book), ain't nuthin' I like better than lively discussion based on thoughtful content (rather than irrational rant). (Not that all those comments at the Powells.com site are "thoughtful." Nothing like confusing the book and its content with the review and its reviewer......)
So check it out here. It's Jay's piece for November 2, 2006.
