I just want to let you know about John Holbo's March 20, 2008 post at Crooked Timber -- "If Wright is wrong, then wrong is right: the Victor Davis Hanson guide to moral absolutes" -- http://tinyurl.com/yo7249 . Some of you [Brace yourself: Ozark English would require that to read "Some of youall"] won't like the content, but I'd still like to recommend that you take a good look at the rhetoric. Especially the skillful use of the "moving the goalposts" metaphor.
