I've also spent part of today watching 3 hours of the great Bernard Lewis on C-Span 2's Books and Authors weekend program. It's fascinating to watch an 86-year-old man still at the top of his abilities, slapping away loony Wahhabi callers who hate him more than anything. His Wahhabist critics cannot deal with him on any real level, and can only resort to incoherent, tearful sputtering, as with the notorious Edward Said piece published last summer.

Another of my favorite authors, Daniel Pipes, is lecturing at Swarthmore tomorrow night, and I will be there.
