Amusing thread. I find it quite amazing that the core American value of literary criticism and debate is under fire. But not surprised, given the warped view of media as open discussion forum in this day and age. Criticism is patriotic. And Zen did one hell of a job. You think Zen's review is harsh, look at the NYT review of books, any Sunday. Grow up you ninnies. If you are bent on bashing WFF, you could find a better cause. Or probably not. Get over it.
