Love him or hate him, you’ve gotta enjoy watching Dean of American Rock Critics Robert Christgau descend into grouchy old manhood:
This is why I never read my comment threads at Rolling Stone and MSN. You want me to notice what you say, spend 44 cents. Snail-mail my gastropod. Still, the aggressive stupidity of these two comments exemplifies why I have a hard time getting misty-eyed about the inherent democracy of the online world. We know there are people with these prejudices reading us. We also know we’re making sense in clear and grammatical English, so fuck them.
The best part? That he’s right. Down with the idiocracy!
