it's like a petition.
Do a Google search for Wolcott Gopnik and you'll find a fair number of bloggers and comment-ers who were so tired of Gopnik's kitsch and would ask him to tone it down, just a bit.
At Gawker. The Nation was quick to the punch, though Hansen jabbed lightly.
Most bloggers just link merrily and move on. There's nothing to add, really. Linkers of various stripes:
Roth Brothers, Diary of a Rat, Biffles at the Bijou, Clive Davis, Christopher Hayes, dcat, lowebrow, Rising Hegemon, The Elegant Variation, Penguins on the Equator, Jewcy, gall and gumption, the stood, All Intensive Purposes (notes the Auster, oh yes), Books are my only friends, The Huffington Post, Bruce Feiler, and, tried and true, Madame Emdashes . . .
And how modest and self-effacing is our hero? The groundswell takes Wolcott by surprise, over at his VF blog.
One lonely Dad comes to Gopnik's defense. If you see more, let me know.
