This classic Jim Harrison sentence, written in a pre-internet context, could well describe most bloggers and on- line reviewers.
"He owned an imponderable urge to both create and consume low-rent information, an urge balanced by his superbly inaccurate observations. "
From the novel "Warlock" by Jim Harrison
Delacorte press/Seymour Lawrence, 1981
Just found out about forthcoming book/DVD
The etiquette of the wild, collaboration between Harrison and Gary Snyder, two writers from my personal inspirational pantheon.
Or to quote the title of a Snyder poem - High quality information.
