Malcolm Gladwell Pounded On NYer Letters Page

Like That Y'All
We were a little slow getting to a dissection of Malcolm Gladwell's latest piece over here, because, well, we are like the old times, we like to carefully weigh our opinions before publishing. (Just joshing!) But the U.S. mail and the letters desk is even slower, so it took until today's New Yorker for their letter pages to be dominated by people trashing Gladwell for the application of his ideas, for his understanding of history and, naturally, about the basketball.

Don't lose too much sleep over Gladwell's prospects. When you traffic in bromides and marketable, bite-sized concepts, there will always be brisk business.
