M Catharine Evans doesn't think Katie Pavlich gives enough credit to David and me over Gunwalker. I am in the middle of reading it and intend to critique the book next week. Pavlich is young and hungry so whatever flaws there are may be forgiven on that account if nothing else. I will say that M. Catharine's words made me choke up. The truth, though, is that Pavlich's book came along at the right time to help the issue from being forgotten so even if I got no mention in it I would still judge it an important contribution. I will confess, however, that I ground my teeth a bit when I heard Katie use the phrase "personnel is policy", without attribution, when referring to Dennis Burke during a FOX interview. She is young and I'm sure she will learn, especially when folks do the same thing to her. Experience is a powerful teacher -- and humbler -- for those smart enough to pay attention.
LATER: Well, heck, she must be doing something right, Katie's being denounced by Media Matters.
