Although all this sophisticated disputation is well above, beyond, and out
of my intellectual range--after all, I am just a semi-literate immigrant
from John Paul II's, Zbigniew Brzezinski's, Nicolas Copernicus', Lech
Walesa's, Adam Zagajewski's, and Czeslaw Milosz's "native realm"--I gladly
admit to REJOICING when I see that there are OTHER PEOPLE in this universe
who ALSO have a problem with the attitude exhibited by Nancy Gish--so
immersed in her sense of superiority vis-a-vis the rest and so free of any
sense of proportion vis-a-vis her definitive pronouncements on whatever
subject may conceivably come up--T or OT--

If these cascades of authoritative widom came from, say, Helen Vendler, or,
say, Cynthia Ozick, or, say, the late Diana Trilling, or, say, the equally
late Mary McCarthy, one would say, well, all is well in this, the best of
all worlds...

But Nancy Gish?
