Tim, they are making it too easy. The nail in the coffin for Fumento was when Malkin linked him about bird flu. Apparently, bird flu ain't no big thing to Mikey.
`The Myth of Heterosexual Avian Flu'?
Jonathan, I am in stitches. I love Fumento's contrarian attitude. He's a poor-man's John Stossel. You can predict which side he'll take before he even takes it, i.e. "which side is more controversial?" He's a bought-and-sold pseudo academic.
Fumento apparently loves to be ridiculed and parades it around with a carefully maintained "hate" page. What a strange psyche.
How come Lott and Fumey boy lean towards chick names for their sock puppets?
I think there could be a dissertation, or at least a good post, on the psychology of naming and choosing the gender of your online altered ego pawns.
A picture of Tracy and Mary together has come into my possession.
"Previous lectures have explored the self-similarity of the wingnut function - how even the tiniest example of wingnuttery is a near-perfect replica of the whole edifice, substantively consonant in every particular but scale."
With regard to the snide and funny `The Myth of Heterosexual Avian Flu' from Dursi above. It should be noted that Fumento, author of "The Myth of Heterosexual Aids," was right about that issue while most around him were talking nonsense.
Indeed, I am a fan of Fumento's work from that era and Lambert's from this one. Both are worth reading.
By the way, Fumento's work on avian flu seems perfectly sensible. I would be interested to read Tim's take on that topic.
