To the editor ...
Very good piece. One major question: did Capshaw ever get around to providing the definition of "anti-Semitism"? Joe Sobran pointed out that it did not have any definition. He wrote: "The word anti-Semitic functions like the word anti-Soviet [in the old, totalitarian Soviet Union]. Being undefined, it's unfalsifiable. Loose charges of 'anti-Semitism' are common, but nobody suffers any penalty for making them, since what is unfalsifiable can never be shown to be false." ("For Fear of the Jews," 2002)
Of course, all of PC takes on the same characteristics as "anti-Semitism," so it is far from being out of place in our contemporary topsy-turvy world.
This is a great article about a great man.
