:: I was admiring the fact that Lark was finally showing some respect for SCHOLARSHIP.
Seems to me that some time before you praised him you should have studied the issue to see if his opinions aren't highly biased. But being clearly and consistently biased yourself, you can't see that.
You know Barry, good scholarship can actually occur outside of your little world. If the term "good scholarship" is only ascribed to that work which supports a very narrow ideal, both the "good" and the "scholarship" are a mite suspect.
