What's worse, having no evidence, or retarded evidence? Brooks claims that text messages have ruined romance. Based on...nothing that I can see. Yglesias attempts to refute him by referring to The Rules of Attraction, written in the 80s. A NOVEL written in the 80s. And by referring to Mad Men, about an office in the early 60s. A FICTIONAL office in the 60s, written and shot today. I guess I'll go with the retarded evidence as superior, or at least more honest. At least I can point out the problems with it. With Brooks, there's nothing there at all. Winner, Yglesias.
