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.

FALLACI LIVE: I just learned from this article that Oriana is now giving lectures in conjunction with AEI's New Atlantic Initiative. Let's hope one of them gets on C-Span.

Sembra che la sibilla stia diventando meno eremita di prima...

Update: Well, not that much less. I contacted New Atlantic Initiative, and they said it was a one time deal, not a series as the Italian paper had reported. And it sounds like a transcript but not a video will be made available. Peccato...

But their website says an audio tape is available on request.
