The Standards of Polymathy Have Hit an All-Time Low

It seems like the set-up to a really mean joke:

"Michael Medved is an intellectual entrepreneur, a political and cultural polymath with great insights, judgment and wit. We are delighted to have this new relationship with him," said Discovery Institute president Bruce Chapman.

But no. It is true.

I don't expect to be able to keep food down for the next couple of days.

It makes one contemplate the excluded middle.
