The worst op-ed ever written?

The worst op-ed ever written? - By Ron Rosenbaum - Slate Magazine: "It was Aug. 5, and professor Stanley Fish, the famous postmodernist and 'guest columnist' for the New York Times, had some breaking news to expound upon in an op-ed piece. He had discovered a new development in American culture that deserved the kind of exegesis only he could deliver: the appearance of a new kind of coffee place.

Have you heard about these new coffee places? Professor Fish's column made it seem as though they had never been noticed or discussed before.

'Getting Coffee Is Hard To Do' was the title of his essay, which in its self-satisfied cluelessness may just qualify as the worst op-ed ever written."
