Bloggers Are A Deranging Influence!

An excellent letter by Darren Barefoot to Leon Wieseltier, a book reviewer from The New York Times:

I read with some interest your recent article on Nicholson Baker’s Checkpoint. In particularly, I was struck by a parenthetical regarding the “the deranging influence of blogs”. This was, at best, a tangential cheap shot that misinforms your readership and exposes your apparent ignorance of this technology.

Incidently, J-Walk posted a review of Baker’s novel. I’m going to wait for a used paperback copy.
