peck brouhaha

James Atlas’ article on Dale Peck in the New York Times, which was mentioned on Moorishgirl earlier this week, led to this interview with Choire Sicha over at Gawker. When I read the interview the first time, I swear, I thought it was a spoof, because the answers seemed, so, well, dalepecky. Really, for someone who dishes out so much grief, he should be able to take some criticism from people without having to call them “ditch-dirty stupid.” The Atlas article inspired a guest column by Steve Almond over at Moby, and some letters in response.
