Suspicions–About Cosmo

An e-mail:

I am second to no one in my admiration of Jonah

Goldberg; I will even go so far as to borrow from

Mencken and say (without the irony) that “he compares

favorably with the rising of the sun and the aurora

borealis”. But isn’t all this Kosmo business a bit

much? It appears to me that NR is in danger of falling

prey to the Cult of Personality. Sure, Kosmo SEEMS

like a fine dog, but how do we know we can trust him?

For example, many of his sayings and attitudes strike

me as distinctly feline. And the notion that he writes

some of Jonah’s copy is just plain silly; everybody

knows that he’s ghost-writing Derbyshire.
