Russell Jacoby, whose wife Naomi Glauberstein
writes restaurant reviews in Los Angeles, is
an old fogy, not a young fogy. I remember him
as a graduate student at the University of
Wisconsin, Madison.

He never was that far to the left in any case.
What reason can a man like this, who must be
contemplating retirement, now want to join the
ranks of the demoralized ex-left like Cooper,
Hitchens and such?

At least a famous journalist, whose name was
spelled just like mine, and who had spent the
great bulk of his life as a liberal ideologist
for the discredited capitalist system had the
decency to go out fighting militantly against
the war in Vietnam.
