Whew boy, speaking of ripostes ...

I think you missed my point, Brendan. The vlogs don't all have to be Rosa-like analyses. Sometimes - fairly often in fact - what passes for depth coming from Robert Wright or Rosa is just intellectual posturing - the long-winded way to say something that can be expressed more simply and clearly. I definitely like Robert and Rosa, but I enjoy a change of pace too.

Althouse was fine and substantial enough. Now, if you were to make the weak-on-substance comment about Charlotte Hays, I'd certainly agree with you on that.

My main point though was that the vlog chemistry was good and the discussion was substantial, even sans fireworks.
