My Interview with Karel on KGO

Just finished up an interview on local radio station KGO with the flamboyant, left-of-center but refreshingly politically-incorrect, Karel. For the first couple of segments, it got a little heated. But I kept my cool and when we continued, I found that Karel and I agreed on a thing or two. Who knew?

The show will be archived for 24 hours, from midnight to midnight (12/11-12/12) and can be heard by clicking here.

I just finished reading your article in the San Francisco Chronicle. You are the most hate-filled and bleary-eyed writer on the subject that I have read in a while. (No hyperbole.) This is in sharp contrast to Carter's measured tones.

You're not impressed by these, of course. When Carter explains that what is happening in Palestine is substantially the same as apartheid, and then goes on to explain some differences, you say that 'once he admits that the title of his book is inaccurate, it questions the whole premise of his book.' The most obvious conclustion is that nuance completely defeats you. But another conclusion, and perhaps more important one, is this: when a reviewer takes a paragraph to analyse the title of a book, she has obviously never read the book.

So go on sending out your press packets, contacting agents, trying to make work as a hack. (I'm sorry- is it offencive to call a writer a hack? When you try to sell your writing, you're not 'hawking' it. Jimmy Carter is 'hawking' his book, while you and your favoured authors would be 'promoting' yours.)

So, continue pursuing an occupation that lets you vent your personal animosity while getting paid for it.

And, by all means, remain oblivious to the fact that, while you paint Israelis as uniform victims of Arabs, it is Israel that gets $3 billion dollars a year from America to make bombs to drop on Lebanese children.
