Bill Vallicella
A recovering academician, I taught philosophy at various universities in the USA and abroad before abandoning a tenured position to live the eremitic life of the independent philosopher in the Sonoran desert.
Interests: Everything. <em>Homo sum: humani nihil a me alienum puto.</em> from Terentius. "I am a man: I consider nothing human foreign to me." Nothing human, but also nothing nonhuman.

I agree completely, Keith. Good post.

Right you are to point out the spectacularly obvious distinction between a blog (weblog) and a blog post or entry. How can a man as intelligent as Walzer not immediately sense that there is a distinction here that ought to be observed? By the way, thanks for posting that quotation. I may swipe it!
Thanks for the extended quotation, Keith, to which I linked at my blog. Blog on!
It's a funny world, Mike. Years ago Keith posted on Leiter, I read a comment on the post by you, Googled you, and the rest is history.

Thanks, Keith. There is indeed something foolish about the man. He must realize at some level that personal attacks on people diminish his status -- when status is what he craves most of all.
