Doubling The Annoyance Factor: The Instantly Recyclable Column.
Spot the differences between Taki's High Life
column in this week's Spectator
and his Le Maitre column
in this week's New York Press
. Obviously, all columnists recycle their stuff, specially when they've been on the job for more than 25 years like this guy, but there's generally a time-lag and a modest attempt at hiding the self-plagiarism. No such bloody luck with Taki.[ To my mind, the most objectionable, reactionary, trumpet-blowing, futile, deeply annoying (but, alas, not unreadable...)columnist in the English-speaking world.
