I hadn't known this ...

... All the shit that’s fit to print. Apparently, the New York Times wouldn't print the full title of Harry G. Frankfurt’s On Bullshit. Here's how Carlin Romano's review in The Inquirer began:

On Bullshit
By Harry G. Frankfurt
Princeton University Press. 67 pp. $9.95
"Obscenity," Bertrand Russell remarked, "is whatever happens to shock some elderly and ignorant magistrate. "

Update: Dave Lull graciously sends along a link to the Times piece: Fighting Bull. Now if I could only link to Carlin's piece. (I could, of course, just post it here, I suppose.)
