This is another of those links to a blog entry on which I’ve left a comment. Just to see if anything happens, really. Must get this "trackback" thing sorted.
Later: yes! quite a few comments, including Jenny D, and some replies from Kevin (who wrote the posting) which for my part had a "putting you in your place" tone to them — but that’s blogging for you.
Frank Wilson over at Books Inq. (see my favourite sites list) has picked up on this debate and linked to it.
