Yes, but who criticizes the critic's critics?   Can't
we just have one scapegoat and be done with it?

Oh please.  It was completely unoriginal content and should
be scorned as such.  I've seen the same exact approach for
LBJ, Feinstein, Reagan, etc.   A shadow of a shadow of
a shadow of creativity.  I would have done something
completely different(tm) and would have done some sort
of Mona Lisa Nixon java applet with Bush quoting Hitler
or vice versa (I'm amazed that there's people on this
list that don't know what it is--a true piece of Web history).

Living History, It Takes a Village, and Dear Socks, Dear
