Thanks for saying this. I'd been contemplating posting about how dangerous it is to cut Bennett any slack in an environment where Modest Proposals can so easily be taken literally, regardless of whether he was intending it as such or not (I do not want to accord him any dog-whistle style plausible deniability ex post facto), but I never got around to it. Keep it up as long as it needs to, and you can handle it. This shit is how Rwandas get started.

I don't really feel a need to be balanced with people who have their thumb on the scale.

and you know, I grew up in Greenwich Village. We moved into one of the first buildings of the co-op boom. Some friends of mine from school lived in the same building. We all lived with our divorced moms, lived in the same building, went to the same nursery school, kindergarten, elementary, intermediate

but their dad was black and mine wasn't.

And unless we were with them, the cops used to roust them from our stoop.

I can keep it up.
