Stanley Fish Hearts Charlton Heston 04/14/2008
Stanley Fish has a lovely appreciation of Charlton Heston in today's New York Times. I almost wrote "Stanley Fish, of all people," but I didn't. There was a time when Fish's admiration for Heston would have surprised me, but not any more. After years of playing Satan in the Culture Wars version of Paradise Lost—rather gleefully, too, it always seemed to me—Fish in the Times has proven to be a much more interesting, and likable, character.
In which I mostly write about books, movies, and TV. An all-purpose spoiler alert: Sometimes I will talk about these works on the assumption that the reader's already read or seen them, so if you haven't, be forewarned.
