An email re: Niall Ferguson's cover story in this week's TIME:
WHY THE FUCK is he writing speculative future history? Is this the beginning of the total debasement of your field?
He has done this before but still, I thought I'd throw the question out to my field.
Not related, but why do you have only 1 post in your RSS feed?
Now if you actually spend time trying to figure out motivations, that's just going to get you all upset and confused. Go with "the editor said so", and breathe deeply :-)
Ferguson must be the butt of thousands of Car Talk jokes.
