A tribute to an inflammatory wackaloon

PZ Myers wrote a post last Sunday about a column by Charlotte Allen, whose column “Atheists: No God, no reason, just whining” recently appeared in the L.A. Times. Allen, in a brilliantly uncreative fashion, singled out PZ as well as the usual cadre of overly vocal atheist authors (Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, etc.) for her ham-handed version of ridicule.
The column was difficult to take seriously, obvious foray into pot-stirring that it was. Nevertheless, she makes excellent fodder for my newest time-wasting habit.

    “overly” vocal?

    I use the term “overly vocal” ironically, not in a Nisbetian way. I see upon review that this is not obvious, however.

    I thought ‘overly vocal’ meant the article contained words so big and complicated they had to be read out loud.
