I’m not sure what it’s really about. Something to do with the Joseph Rakofsky matter, I think. And then some other stuff, prally deeper than that.
The important thing is that they are both on my blogroll and I must keep the peace. Just kidding. I will wade into those waters not at all. But I will note that Pattis used “Et tu” in the title of his post, and that is mine. I stole it from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, where he – you know, Julius Caesar – goes “Et tu, Brute?” as Brute, his erstwhile friend, plunges a knife in his back.
Now seriously, in the Pattis-Greenfield context that’s a little overdone and melodramatic. In the Bennett-Atticus exchanges it’s cool, though.
And that’s all I’m gonna say about it.
