ACCUMULATING PERIPHERALS


Sullivan provides evidence for Yglesias’s blogger production quotas by mattsteinglass

Andrew Sullivan cites two strange-sounding paragraphs from what seems much more polemical than a Scott McLemee review of a collection of “New Criterion” essays should, and full of seemingly passe issues. And that’s because it’s not a Scott McLemee review: McLemee reviewed a new collection of essays by George Scialabba, the guy who wrote the paragraphs in question back in 1995, when the New Criterion collection came out. Sullivan seems to have accidently clicked through to Scialabba’s site, where the review appears, and thought he was still reading McLemee’s review…though why he thought McLemee was reviewing the New Criterion essays rather than Scialabba is a bit of a mystery.

It happens to the best of us. But when it happens, it suggests we’re trying to write too fast…
