From today's Strib letters section:
"I have been enjoying Kersten's columns in the Star Tribune since the days when she was associated with the Center of the American Experiment. The pleasure I receive from her work is multiplied several times by the vicious and predictable responses from her critics. She has been singled out as Minnesota's worst writer by some of Minnesota's top literary snobs -- seen as quite an achievement by us little people. When will her critics realize that her easy-to-read, common-sense opinions are among the top reasons we continue to maintain our subscriptions? RUSS PAUMEN, MAPLE LAKE"
Katherine Kersten is a talentless hack who does nothing but recycle the same rightwing talking points again and again, but dubbing her Minnesota’s Worst Writer ™ is actually a Google Bomb we set off about 5 years ago. It's nice to know the meme took hold.
And it's nice to know that Mr. Russ Paumen of Maple Lake doesn't do any better research than Kersten does.
Hey, she just stuck up for The Great Gatsby. Maybe she has unplumbed depths you haven't considered. (I was going to say maybe she has more in common with you than you know, but that would have been cruel.)
