    &quot;lazy collectors and purveyors of … info-detritus,&quot; yes! I understand how this kind of thing propagates; what I fail to understand is how these info-detritus addicts secure positions at prestigious institutions of lower (oops) learning. Does anyone read their pathetic manifestoes? Does anyone sit in on their classes? There are bigger mysteries, of course, but this (for me) is right up

    Here&#39;s another &quot;contra conceptual&quot; from John Latta&#39;s recent post at &quot;Isola di Rifiuti&quot;:<br /><br />&quot;Girdings up, readjustments. Looking about at the commonplaces of today’s story’d renegades, the lazy collectors and purveyors of the info-detritus, page by page (call it “conceptual”). <br /><br />Priceless, eh?
