RESPONSE: Hanson/Heath on Beye and Connolly on Hanson/Heath

Dear Editors,

We are pleased to see that Who Killed Homer? warrantstwo lengthy hit pieces from the academic left. If Joy Connolly did not exist(?), someone would have to invent her. Essentialize? Valorization? Ideologicalgrids? Rhetorical discourse? Inscribed complexities? What 1980s tar pitdid this postmodern stegosaurus lumber out from?

Charles Rowan Beye's machine gun spray left a fascinating pattern onthe wall. But we're still not sure what he was aiming at. Still, at leasthe is funny and can write, and his passive-aggressive drive-by proves -- ifanyone had any doubts -- that he is by now well beyond good and evil.

Victor Davis HansonJohn Heath
