Mighty Fishy

An op-ed piece in the Times today, from the dean emeritus of my old university (no, I wasn't there when he was).

Stanley Fish, "The Candidates, Seen From the Classroom"

As usual, Dr. Fish makes some startling, cogent points. And while I value nuance and complexity (as in wine, so also in rhetoric), his argument is solid: even with appropriate subtlety, you must be clear in what you communicate.
