In most instances, the fact that he has a PhD in literature should *give rise* to questions regarding his views, not discourage them. This is particularly true with regard to popular (as opposed to "literary," not that they're necessarily antithetical) writing.

I would grant an exception to this rule in the case of any PhD with common sense enough to be a member of the Rara-Avians.

I have my M.A., and sometimes I think I got out just in time, while I could still read for pleasure without wondering about the symbolism of every prop that's longer in one dimension than the other two.
