John Hawks points to this comical editorial about bloggers and their uncrafted blather.
The author is a "Centennial Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University", a sinecure apparently given to centenarians so they can write angry, rambling letters to editors and news blogs. He seems unaware that his piece was published on a blog.
Of course, we are free not to read the blogs that addle the brain. But to know they do, we have to read them and as a result fill our heads with worthless chatter.We have to read crappy blogs first before deciding they are crap, but by then our brains have turned to crap. Damnit, it's a catch-22! I sure hope Vanderbilt doesn't let this guy teach any courses in logic.
I, for one, am proud of my contribution to the rending of Society's fabric. My brain is quite addled, and if you made it this far, your's must be also.
