David Warren of the Ottowa Citizen thinks that Salam Pax is a Baathist and part of an anti-Western conspiracy. I find his premise embarassingly absurd and will write more about it later, but I mention it because it's been getting some attention already. Fortunately, a blog called Needlenose does a good job of revealing that Warren is guilty of the greatest of literary crimes -- skimming the text rather than actually reading it.

Actually, that's being generous; I think he consciously fabricated much of the story and assumed nobody (not his editors, at least) would call him on it. (Via Kaus.)
