I’d just like to remind everyone once again that there is quite a fascinating, high-level, and mature conversation going on in the Geoff Baker Redux thread. Fascinating because Geoff Baker has been showing up for a couple of days and, to his enormous credit given what I’ve written in the past week or so, taking on all comers. High-level because there’s talk of ethics, sharp analogies, and reasoned argument. Mature because, contrary to popular belief, the blogosphere just lends itself better to adult conversation than do newspapers and television.
Put differently, ShysterBall commenters kick ass, and there’s great evidence of this on display in the thread.
