Obviously he would want me to shut up, too. Still, I can't stop myself from linking to this piece in Seattle's Stranger by Neal Pollack, mocking all writing about the war, for and against. "Shut up, antiwar people. Shut up, pro-war people," Pollack writes. "Shut down your computers and shut your goddamn pieholes. No one gives a shit what you write, so stop writing about the war. Shut up, all of you." And shut up, specifically, Christopher Hitchens, Andrew Sullivan, Ted Rall, Lewis Lapham, Anne Lamott, Bill Keller, Hendrik Hertzberg, and poets for peace.
