Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

There also seem to have been a few visitors who came here recently by searching for Fallaci's 9/11 article. To them (and everyone else) I say: GO BUY THE BOOK! It was supposed to have shipped last month according to amazon, but I suspect the plan is to have it appear all over the bookstores on 9/11. Anyway, it's finally being made available in English in a complete, authorized translation, so that's where you should look.
