Kier Cutler demonstrates being an Anti-Stratfordian Crackpot with a poor sense of logic. The Center for Disease Control warns that this may be contagious. Don't let it happen to you.

By Kier Cutler, PhD (English)

I am a “crackpot.” More accurately, I have a “psychological aberration.” I am also “ignorant,” “a snob” and “a publicity hound.”

I “have a poor sense of logic,” “refuse to accept evidence,” and am “certifiably mad.” I am “pursuing a poisonous, insidious agenda.”

Who calls me (and people like me) by those terms?

About the author

Roger Stritmatter is a native liberal humorist who lives in Baltimore, Maryland. Contrary to rumor, he does not live on North Avenue. He does, however, work on North Avenue. A pacifist by inclination, one of his heroes is John Brown. But he thinks that Fredrick Douglass, another of his heroes, made the right decision. Stritmatter's primary areas of interest include the nature of paradigm shifts, the history of ideas, forensic literary studies, MS studies, renaissance literature, and the history of the Shakespearean question, the latter a field in which he has published extensively.

  1. Nota bene per today. The link to Kier’s article in the Gazette is now down and I get an error message that says If you click on the link it says “We’re very sorry. This isn’t the page you were looking for.”

    I don’t mean to quibble, but actually it was. I mean, I wrote a whole blog about it and now my blog is ruined because the Montreal Gazette can’t manage its own data base? Sheesh. What is the world coming to, anyway?
