"Let me put this bluntly," says Richard Schickel, "in
 language even a busy blogger can understand: Criticism — and 
its humble cousin, reviewing — is not a democratic activity.

by individuals who bring something to the party beyond 
their hasty, instinctive opinions of a book (or
any other cultural object). So to all you dirty, 
stinkin' apes out there in Bloggerland: STAY THE HELL
