Dear Log,

Camille Paglia was on BookTV for three of your Earth "hours" this last weekend.

She is an absolute firehose of bullshit. Her trick is just to talk very very fast all the time. That's it. But as a sort of aleatoric process (monkeys at typewriters and all that), she will occasionally say something nearly coherent that you haven't heard elsewhere. But -- and try this -- wait around a while and she'll say anything, including four novel ways of opposing or undermining the one interesting thing you heard from her. And along the way, three thousand high-speed inanities about "the Sixties", and the working class, and Harold Bloom, and Post-Structuralists, and Nature.

She is Debt to Pleasure at 78 rpm.
