John Leonard is Gone
John Leonard has died. Can't say that I will miss him. He was a talented writer and perceptive critic, celebrated by the country's intellectual establishment, but in the end he was a moral imbecile. His defense of communism and its fellow travelers in the West consisted of saying that they were motivated by the best of human values, even if the consequences of their choices were unfortunate. What crap! His popularity and influence testifies to the moral bankruptcy of America's intelligentsia.
