Old (sort of) Liberal

by Michael O. Allen on February 3, 2008

I used to debate Jim Sleeper when we both toiled at the New York Daily News. I thought many of his columns were wrongheaded. Although I was a young reporter, he graciously listened to my criticism and even deigned to debate me. I lost touch with him over the years.

It’s good to see him still writing.

God Bless You (or whatever is the secular-humanist equivalent), Michael, but what do you mean that I “deigned” to debate you? It was an honor. You were a sensitive, prescient, and very charitable writer and social observer then, and clearly you are so now — and not just because you’ve linked my bit of civic poetry about the 2008 presidentiad.
