    Don’t Hate Me, I’m On Your Side

    By kyle | May 9, 2014

    Kurt Andersen had me on his radio show the other day to talk about, among other things, my ranking as the third most-hating critic out there. Check it out.

    Kurt’s a great guy and asked interesting questions.

      All these years, I had no idea George Will was an atheist. I don’t recall him copping to it back in the 80s and early 90s, when I read him most. Haven’t read him in a while.
