Heard Richard Dawkins peddling his new book, The Greatest Show on Earth, on CBC radio’s The Current this morning with Anna-Maria Tremonti.
I’m sure he’s a very intelligent, well-educated man, but I don’t like his schtick. He’s made a ton of money and a Cambrian-explosionful of notoriety by being deliberately arrogant, smug and rude to people who do not agree with him.
I wish that worked for me! If I could make money by insulting people, I’d do it all the time. I’d get nasty mail and phone calls, but at least I could screen them while sunning myself on a beach in Maui.
