interesting op-ed piece in the NYT this morning. my favorite part, of course, the “without having ever listened to him” admittance.

so funny how academics, those of the the research privileging, cite sourcing, mind opening sect, are soooo quick to dismiss something they don’t understand (before every trying to understand it.)

“After years of dismissing Mr. Stern as a sexist, racist potty mouth — without having ever listened to him — I happened upon his radio show purely by accident one morning about 10 years ago, and I was struck by a measured, thoughtful tone that did not precede him.” – Saïd Sayrafiezadeh

the rest, if you’re interested:

    Greg! Great to hear from you, man! I’m living in Rural Georgia … only about 40 minutes from Atlanta. Got a tenure-track English job at University of West Georgia. Not a bad gig at all. Town kinda sucks. But ATL is pretty darn cool. I’m playing bass in a bossa nova band in this town. Strange, this life …

    I’m sure I have a ton of photos of the guest house. What are you looking for? Has it been razed?

    Keep me posted. I miss you guys often.

    Take care,
    -Kev
