Boy Howdy, Are Tom Engelhardt And Crew Thought‑Provoking Lately...

Start with the moment's topmost post, Tomgram: Engelhardt, Is a New Political System Emerging in This Country?, and read straight through at least Nan Levinson's cheekily titled sub-post, The Big Dick School of American Patriotism And What We Make of It. Have you read it? Now tell me: does something feel out of balance, and I don't mean the prose?

Let me be clear: I admire Engelhardt and other authors on his site greatly. But in our era, the out-of-balance sensation is sure to afflict any sensible writer, and they are not exceptions to that rule. Now pardon me for a few minutes; I need to have my brain washed... I need water; please hand me a Glass.
