Christopher: I don't particularly approve of Bruce Anderson's rhetorical style (there's a reason the Brit satire mag Private Eye calls Anderson "The Brute"), but the line you highlight from Hari's review bothered me, too. (And by the way, Hari may be completely correct in his assessment of Steyn's thesis; I'm generally skeptical of all doomsday scenarios.) To say that Mark Steyn is uneducated is moronic, and suggests a totally misguided obsession with academic credentials. When it comes to being educated, the right piece of sheepskin is neither necessary nor sufficient.
