An insider, so to speak, look at an interesting topic. In this case, the perils and rewards of being an (supposed) savant of opinion, at probably the most storied news outlet of them all. Nice work by the Author in explaining the issue while at the same time, intentionally or otherwise, bringing low the referenced writer in detail. Trustingly the dear reader will forgive that minor bit of editorializing on my part. Still though, the article remains generally even-handed. Well-sourced with good quoting. A decidedly worthwhile read. Four stars!
