in reply to Boycott O'Reilly

It's laughable really, but makes me shudder inwardly, that most of the cries ever heard to "burn the books" were from people who had never even read them. I look at the original post and my thoughts go to Iran and the Hostage Crisis, to Mao's Cultural Revolution, to Kristalnacht and to all mobs out there incited by this kind of ignorance.

I don't care that you don't like the book or what it stands for - I just wish you had read it before denouncing it...

    I've read some O'Reilly books which I think should be burned. ;-). Of course, that has all to do with the quality (or rather the absense of quality).

      But I fear that at any rate you would only burn your own copy - so much for the Revolution...
