|Lee "Sprezzatura" Siegal writes about the classics. |
While I tend to agree with the idea that reading "great books" does not create "good people," I also find myself loathing him (once again). More enjoyable is the delicious irony of having this practitioner of sock puppetry make this particular argument. The short version: blame it on Bellow. It's tough to be human (like Siegal) with members of the electronic mob (like myself) constantly mocking you and your ideas.
