  1. I just read your cogently expressed review of Neil Postman’s last book. Like you, I am an admirer of his work, and assigned his book Technopoly in a course I taught at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI. For most of my teaching years before retiring, I preached the gospel of print, how it always represents a creative act on the part of the reader, how the act of reading is an act of freedom unavailable to those in the thrall of visualizations.
    I will be candid. When I saw you self-identified as a libertarian, I clicked on your site to see what one more bug-eyed right-winger was up to. It surprised me to see Postman’s book on your list, and I must acknowledge a firmly cemented set of assumptions that I was apparently wrong in applying to you.
