Rushdie, Rushdie - take thy foot out of thy mouthe

Salman Rushdie, variously known as a poor writer and a rich fugitive, but never as anything brilliant intellectually, has once again filled a few pages (this time of our own Australian) with his never-well-researched rubbish.

It is about literature (his does not qualify, so we are spared), about translation (what would he know??) and about adaptations for the screen. The whole drivel can be read here, but even more informative are the comments at the bottom :-D. Looks like Rushdie is criticizing something he did not actually watch. Well, well.. we can write critiques on hearsay these days, too.
