After l’affaire Heffernan, I was curious to see what, if any, letters to the editor would appear in the NY Times. The Sunday Magazine printed two letters, both critical of Heffernan, which suggests to me, that there were very few, if any, supporters of Heffernan’s position (An aside: anyone know if the letters actually make their way to Heffernan? Just wondering).
I like this point:
If some bloggers sound desperate and strident, it’s possibly because even into the 21st century, only 39 percent of Americans believe in evolution and one out of five believes the Sun revolves around the Earth.
