An interesting take. This was one of the many things he said in his Sunday post, most of which I either agree with or was informed by.
I'm glad to see that some of the knock 'em down and drag 'em out aspects of the inter-post rivalries have been downplayed and by the posters themselves.
As far as I'm concerned, this debate can go on all summer so long as we hear new things like with Eric's post.
It's informative and good reading that helps keep me away from what I should be doing.
