Ummm...isn't this a little biased?
I've gone ahead and done so, pending a second opinion from another reviewer. For the record, all apparent "bias" is unintentional. The "Big Bird" thing seemed to be getting a lot of press and seemed too significant to omit.
Hm. Almost as soon as I wrote that, I had doubts; I quickly realized there were reasonable arguments to be made both ways, and it becomes a rather abstract question of ordering. I don't think there's really bias in this article; note the other comment made here, where the commenter thanks us for the only unbiased article about the debate on the internet. Afaics, the Big Bird thing has continued to get a good deal of press, and that in itself says something interesting (and open to the reader's interpretation) about the debate.
