Alter Responds

Jonathan Alter responds to recent criticism.

I like Alter, but Brad DeLong has it right -- people are afraid of being called "shrill." Strangely, only people expressing criticism of this administration are afraid of that.

I understand very well the notion that you can never talk outside the current frame, you can only try to expand its borders. But, frankly, I think these are shrill times.
