Yet another stupid reference to the Middle Ages

As in, “your article was plenty informative, why did you have to say THAT?” stupid. He doesn’t even make an attempt to link his pejorative use of the word “medieval” to anything, except to assume readers will connect donkeys and illiteracy with some dark, mysterious passage in Western history. Put down your copy of Manchester’s A World Lit Only by Fire, and pick up something like Hollister and Bennett, for crying out loud….
