With friends like these..

Shashi Tharoor gets a chance to write an op-ed, in the New York Times, about cricket. He then goes ahead and ruins it all by throwing in gratuitous reductive analyses about the US, its cultural inclinations, and to make things really bad, indulges in some pointless baseball bashing. He then gets taken to task in the letters section. As my co-blogger on Decoding Liberation, Scott Dexter, put it, "It's a pity, because i think there probably is something to be said about cricket and the general speedup of contemporary life". Well, not by Tharoor. Gee, why do I have to do everything myself?
