Hate the Spin, Love the Spinner

For those who have read Jonathan Merritt's "spinning" essay in USA Today, one would do well to read Wes Kenney's artful response.

Kenney's article is a good example of clear, careful thinking. Merritt's argument seems decent on first glance and makes several good points. Kenney reminds us to read carefully and points out some serious flaws.

I am afraid that many in my generation are overcome by sloppy arguments that appeal merely on an emotional level.
