WHO? Most of you know who Klinghoffer is, so you can skip the next two indented paragraphs:
He has written a series of essays attempting to link Charles Darwin to: Hitler, and communism, and Stalin, and the Columbine shootings, and Charles Manson, and Holocaust Museum shooter, James von Brunn, and the Ft. Hood Massacre, and Mao Tse-tung, and Dr. Josef Mengele, Angel of Death and “Devotee of Darwin”, and most recently the Occult.
David’s own blog hasn’t had a post since 16 March, and although he’s popped up a couple of times at the Discoveroid blog, it’s been nothing of importance. So what’s he been up to?
Assuming he’s not suffering from some physical or other personal problems (if he is, then this post never existed), our guess is that his Discoveroid masters have assigned him to a particularly challenging task — but we can’t imagine what it might be. David’s talents, as we’ve come to know them through his writings, don’t suggest anything that might be appropriate for someone with his skill set.
Well, there might be something. We can imagine a group of awe-struck creationist visitors who are being shown around Discoveroid headquarters, and suddenly the entire bunch of them are struck with some ghastly (but intelligently designed) virus which causes them to experience uncontrollable vomiting, together with other symptoms that are — shall we say — even less dignified but more explosive. The environmental consequences would be … well, you understand.
Were such to occur, the staff at Discoveroid headquarters would look at the mess and think: “This is a job for Klinghoffer!” But that would only require a few hours of work. David has been out of sight for far longer than that.
Your Curmudgeon is concerned. After all, David is one of the Discoveroids’ senior fellows. That’s a significant title. He far outranks Casey, who isn’t even a junior fellow; yet we see Casey’s work all over the place. David’s low profile is an ominous sign.
Anyway, he’ll probably show up, and then we’ll be able to evaluate his latest efforts. Until then we’ll just have to sit back and wait.
