Summertime, and the livin' is easy...

... especially for lazy NY Times columnists. "I might as well tell you upfront that this column is a book report," writes Mr. Brooks. Not a book review, mind you, since that might require exercising some critical faculties, which can be so taxing. A reviewer might feel obliged, for example, to question the book's claim (according to the book report) that with secularization "Common action... gives way to mutual display." True? A consequence of secularism, or mere correlate? Oh nevermind. At least he's getting some reading done.


  1. Ah good ol David Brooks.

  2. Now lets get Brooks a copy of "Being and Time". Love to see him do a book report on Heidegger.
