They'll None of 'Em Be Missed

Michael Bérubé celebrates his inclusion in David Horowitz's Discover the Network, which, if you haven't heard of it, is roughly equivilent to one of Joe McCarthy's little lists of American commies.

Bérubé helps us put the whole thing in context:
This is a time to celebrate! There are only about 250 people listed on Discover the Network’s “academics” list, and some of the entries are really perfunctory. The one for Paul Gilroy, for instance—one of the leading figures in British cultural studies—basically consists of “Paul Gilroy: is uppity. Teaches at Yale. Criticized the Iraq War.” Compared to that, I got me a stretch limo with complimentary hemlock, folks!
Congrats Michael!
