  1. Hi Brian,

    I saw your comment at The Rumpus re: Tony Towle’s piece at John Latta’s Isola di Rifiuti blog. Though I’m the target of your sarcasm, I have to say the analogy was pretty humorous, there.

    But I wanted to say that I have a long reply going up tomorrow at the same blog. There seems to be growing interest, actually, in the topic, and I hope that you will also link in your Rumpus notes to my response. I thnk you’ll see that Towle’s argument is not as strong as some people have taken it to be!
