WEST/SUMMERS UPDATE: Instapundit has a ton of stuff, of course. And Andrew Sullivan links to this ripping of West by Leon Wieseltier from 1995. I remember reading another anti-West piece more recently, I thought it was the Weekly Standard but you can't read anything old there now without paying for it. I like the Summers-West fight but am disappointed that Summers appears to be backing down; if this was wrestling they'd be kissing and making up while the audience boos. Summers-West is on the undercard of my intellectual pay-per-view, along with the Paglia-Foucault Fans Death Match, the Ted Rall-Ken Layne comedy match and the main event of Hitchens-Chomsky. Ah, sweet sport.
