From a reader:
As an addicted “Cornerite” since its inception, I am continuously struck at the seemingly personal attacks (JPod comes to mind) that Krikorian seems to provoke from his “colleagues”. Is it the man that brings out the worst in people, or the message?
Since I’ve received a couple of emails like this–only a couple, thank goodness–let me make it explicit: I think very highly of Mark and found him charming and persuasive when he taped an episode of Uncommon Knowledge, the TV show I used to host. I probed his last couple of posts not because I wanted to be tendentious but because I genuinely wanted to know more about his thinking.
