May God help us all. I am weary upon reading about the rapid elevation of yet another young right-winger to literary or journalistic stardom (“Goodbye to All That,” 4/9). The sky is the limit these days if you are a reactionary, an anti-feminist, a “social” conservative, a “religious” conservative, or just plain conservative.

It seems that the lack of good reporting or actual hard digging can be easily overlooked, as long as the piece reflects the continuing backlash so well documented by Susan Faludi at the beginning of the decade.
