Renaissance Man Ben Stein
Ben Stein, possibly one of the few true examples of a renaissance man around these days, has a great riposte to Joel Stein's LA Times column that I've been ragging on in the American Spectator.
I place Ben Stein in the renaissance man category because he has managed to become an economic advisor to a president, a lawyer, author, actor (Bueller? Bueller?) and game show host all in one lifetime. To top it all he has managed to raise the level of the discussion during all of these activities, something particularly hard to do on a game show, but anyone who has watched Win Ben Stein's money will agree.
Thanks to A Large Regular for pointing me toward the Ben Stein column.
