Ruminations: "Generously angry"
Tuesday, January 18, 2011
"Generously angry"Hendrik Hertzberg of The New Yorker has just alerted me to Andrew Sullivan's latest blog entry:
Rick Hertzberg apparently thinks my "generous orthodoxy" blog is "generously angry." Maybe it is! I will continue to strive for the "generous" part, indeed.
I used to read Sullivan's blog regularly but gave it up because it just took up too much time. However, this post is really worth the trip. In particular, his discussion of Sarah Palin manages to say everything, generously, with only the slightest touch of disdain.
Normally I would put this blog entry into "Tips," because it involves another (virtual) publication, but since Sullivan's blog is definitely "ruminative," it goes into "Ruminations" today.
