Luna culpa

Well, I thought maybe perhaps my letter would get published, but I wasn't expecting the Voice to stick it in the Editorial! Well, good on 'em. I am happy that the exchange remained light hearted, too. While issues of fact-checking, information literacy, and responsible journalism are very serious ones when you view the intellectual landscape today (which is sadly starting to look a little barren... too many little scrubby factoids and not enough solid big thinking), it also doesn't do to bludgeon someone to death with the message. Though, apparently I am suspected to be one who may indeed bludgeon ;)
