Feeling less useful

The thing about so many news Web sites now attaching comment engines to most of their articles (what James Lileks accurately described as "a slime trail of ignorant comments), I feel far less ambition to conduct the kind of fiskings I so enjoyed in years past.

I mean, sure, I could still take Nick Coleman's mind-drool columns behind the literary woodshed and administer the old smackdowns of yesterday, but then I read a comment that basically says "Nick you're an idiot who can't write," and I think "You know, that sums it up perfectly. I have nothing to add."

The Internet has evolved and passed me by, I fear. Alas.
