I've always thought that Conrad and Barbara are scumbags, but they are both very talented writers. My contempt for Conrad won't keep me from enjoying his book.
Can't say as I've read even a smidgen of Black's books, although I've certainly read scattered quotes and sound-bites of his... he is indeed a quite competent writer, although one given to overly dense and bombastic phrasing. It should come as no surprise that Black should continue to elicit mixed reactions from the public. He is a larger than life fellow... even when he slips up there is a certain magnitude of presence to the man... which fact probably drives his many detractors nutty.I've always thought that Conrad and Barbara are scumbags, but they are both very talented writers.

black is found guilty of in a court of law after hiring one of the most expensive legal defence teams since OJ Simpson, and I'm raking the muck?Man, you're really raking the muck, aren't you.
"money shot" would be much more appropriateIf you're looking for trouble you're out of luck. You can defend your judgments any which way you wish, but it simply sounds to me like you're harbouring a double standard. A woman can give you some oral pleasure and it's fine, but if it's a columnist you despise doing the same for a powerful public figure of a man, you've got a problem with it? Pretty odd logic there.
You have plenty of ammunition to take on Black and Amiel without barging self-righteously into their bedroom and flinging crap at them for their alleged sexual habits. A cheap shot is what I call it... no matter how many grinning smilies you assign to a post, the end result is the same - hypocrisy.
playing golf actuallyWell, you certainly took awhile too cook that little gem up. At a loss for words, were you?
I guess I should be strangely honoured that you can't let it go. Ahhh well... you've got double standards and you can't admit it. Why is it that people who proudly wear their social conscience on their sleeves are usually the last to admit when they're nursing their little pet hypocritical stances? Spec - don't answer - it's a rhetorical question.
I hate Golf beejaconAhh yes... the bourgeois habits of the complaining class. I understand perfectly!
