Osama bin Ladin Also Only Watches PBS

DTLV tipped me to these old David Brooks columns, which are kinda-sorta related to my screed about Andrew Sullivan's PBS tote-bagism.

Interestingly enough, he sees the phenomenon -- which he calls bourgeoisophobia -- in not just the feeling shared by all academics and reporters and Hollywood types that it's just not fair that people don't take their opinions more seriously, but in European and Arab rage at America.

And, of course, at those pesky Jews. Jews are to hatred what the Vatican is to conspiracy theories. At some point, a conspiracy theory is going to include Pope Pius X, and at some point any system of hatred is going to have a special place for Jews.

Here's part 1.

And here's part 2.

I'm only half-finished, but they're very interesting.
