Hey, can anyone tell me if Cornel West has responded to the Katha Pollitt "attack" on him in The Nation a week or two ago? Has anyone read the book he co-wrote on "the family" and is it as bad as Pollitt says? Just curious, and Ive no time to read the thing myself.... I read her piece on him last night, and I thought it was harsh and more ad hominen and polemical than analytical, though I do agree he sure as hell should have removed his name from that egregious Institute of American Values committee/document.
