Comment:        Re: SHK 13.0567 Re: New York Times

". . . badly misinformed nonspecialists such as Justice John Paul
Stevens are taken in by Oxfordian propaganda, but it saddens us that the
Times would tarnish its reputation by uncritically publishing such
anti-intellectual drivel."

I agree with Hardy that banning authorship debate greatly enhances this
list.  I have read David Kathman and Terry Ross as well as Oxfordian
rhetoric.  Both sides sound like the propaganda organs of totalitarian
dictatorships.  I resist using the word "offensive" as I object to
others using it as a weapon, but view it as the juvenile brand-loyalty
of people with little better to do with their lives.  A great big pox on
both their houses.
