Smart Isenberg, Selectively Dumb Bush

David Isenberg’s latest SMART letter (#81) is out, and it’s another good ‘un. The bulk of the issue talks about his recent trip to Middle Earth, um, New Zealand, a place that may be small enough to be smart enough to do the Right Thing about telecommunications. Unfortunately, he hasn’t yet posted it on his website.

David includes a quotation from Mark Crispin Miller:

“[U.S. President George W. Bush] has no trouble speaking off the cuff when he’s speaking punitively, when he’s talking about violence, when he’s talking about revenge. When he struts and thumps his chest, his syntax and grammar are fine. It’s only when he leaps into the wild blue yonder of compassion, or idealism, or altruism, that he makes these hilarious mistakes.”

Mark Crispin Miller author of The Bush Dyslexicon: Observations on a National Disorder, quoted in “Bush Anything But Moronic,” by Murray Whyte, Toronto Star, November 28, 2002.

  1. David,

    I look forward to being inspired by your ideas and technology writings in 2003. I also look forward to being equally ticked off by your political writing.

    You have influenced my thinking more than any other writer this year. Thank you for that gift.

    I wish you and yours the best in 2003,

Web Joho only
