TOM WOLFE SPOKE IN -- AND TO -- SAN FRANCISCO YESTERDAY: Ed Driscoll has a report:

The whole thing reminded me of the Star Trek episode where Captain Kirk explains to a marooned Zefram Cochrane that there's a whole, growing galaxy out there teaming with life that he can explore. Except that Wolfe was essentially telling an insular and emotionally walled-in left to go visit America for themselves.

Read the whole thing.

UPDATE: Several readers note that Wolfe continues to plug James Webb's new book. Yeah, I had noticed that. It seems to be selling quite well: it's at #133 on Amazon.
