Bad Writing

Steven has an uncharacteristically harsh -- towards me, anyway -- response to my two entries about In the Cut that's worth checking out.

I'm figuring out what I want to say in response, waiting for my heart to slow down.

Right now it will suffice to say that I have the same visceral reaction to arguments that cite those "Bad Writing" contests -- inevitably bestowed on the progressive academics I read for both work and pleasure -- as I do to ones that refer to Erin O'Connor's blog as if she were the only person who noticed that the Emperor has a distinctive mark on his penis.

It's not pleasant.
