You don't agree with Updike's politics but you were able to judge his artistic work on its own merits. To me, this is the mark of an enlightened person. (Sorry if I choked a little while typing that :-)

By contrast, this Dreher fellow blasts Updike even though he admits he's never even read the man! The worst kind of ignorance is the willful kind.

Hey Brian: I guess in defense of Dreher, we bloggers are liable to spout off the occasional silly thing on the spur of the moment. My post bothered me a little because of the lack of an Albany connection, but it has since occurred to me that Updike's Dutch-WASP ethnic heritage is the same as the founders of the city.
