02/07/2005: Divisiveness and Polemicists
Today's Chicago Tribune had a piece by Dennis Bryne on divisiveness in politics and about national issues. Mr. Byrne can't quite decide whether this a bad thing, good thing, or just necessary business as usual.
Finally, something I can agree with Mr. Bryne about. Divisiveness.
But I recently got a copy of Christopher Hitchen's new book, "Love, Poverty, And War, Journeys and Essays. The jacket covers describes Mr. Hitchens (among other things) as "a well publicized polemicist." What I really want to know, is how does one earn the moniker of being a "polemicist"?
Must begin with divisiveness and move on from there...but it's gotta be a hard road to hoe... apparently Mr. Hitchens' got what it takes to be a polemicist for our times. Something for us all to aspire to. LOL.
