I'm only about 60% through Easterbrook's column, but I am once again astounded by his writing - how is it possible for one man to be that wrong so many times in one article? How is it that Easterbrook still has a job as a writer?

I really hope I don't end up wasting my evening ripping this piece to shreds, but I may have to....

Wow, now that I've read the whole piece it has only gotten worse. Easterbrook at his absolute inimitable worst. Ugh. Hating Easterbrook was about the only thing Pooh and I agreed on.
