I agree that the implicit should be roused only when truly necessary. Every making explicit is a diminishment. That's why I carefully added the words "when appropriate," although I also carefully avoided saying when that would be, since I didn't think that would be, well, appropriate.

Wolf only occasionally has to remind us explicitly what his norms are, and sometimes - as when being cowed by Cheney after asking about Cheney's daughter - he doesn't quite know what they are himself.

Thanks, David. Yes, you did indeed add, "when appropriate."

This all presumes that there is something called blog. Blog is dead.


Blog is dead. Long live blog.
