Bradley Burston, Beit Hanoun and Don Radlauer

When a mediocre Jewish-Russian writer, whose name I have quite (conveniently?) forgotten, was asked why the great Russian-Jewish writer Isaak Babel writes so slowly, the former was a man enough to say something to the following effect: "It is like the difference between rabbits and elephants. I am rather like a rabbit, producing new book every few months. Babel is more like an elephant, writing slowly and painfully. But he produces elephants."

Well, why such a long introduction to a short directive, which is: Don has written another great post that demands your attention, so go and read it.

Oh, by the way, it seems that we both belong to BB fans club. Nice to know.
