Fighting The Good Fight

Mr. Peperium has a nice little essay posted about Jane Austen and the Iron Duke and their mutual attack on a common foe that is well worth reading.

Yips! to the Maximum Leader.

oh excellent mr peperium! well observed and well stated.
it seems to one that mankind (oh all right, womankind too) is roughly divided between the janes and the oprahs, the iron dukes and and the phil donahues; is this phenomenon largely a matter of nature or nurture, wd one think?
it is one's own opinion that people are born pre-disposed across a bell-curve towards one pole
(sense) or the other (sensibility) but that there is always, or almost always, a great pull for the middle mass towards sensibility. as someone said, man is not a reasonable animal; man is a feeling
animal who (occasionally) reasons--(one's own parenthesis).---oh, soorry, woman, too.
