A little apostate music
Cranmer says of the knighthood for Salmon Rushdie that, aside from it making the proper people angry, there was no point to it as Rushdie's books are awful. Don't know that I've heard anyone comment on them otherwise. The New Yorker editor, on terminally important radio (NPR), said that, in regard to one of his books, Rushdie's sister was furious at him for repeating the scene of their father's death as an episode transported into one of his novels. Otherwise it's been radio silence. There is this late breaking report re: the knighthood. Need I remind Cranmer that Knights were those who rode in the face of danger which surely S. Rushdie has done.
