I don't even see it as a fanboy issue (though you're right about that), more of an ignorance issue. Ward before Gatti is an interesting story, as was FDR before 1941.

As an English teacher told me in College, decades ago, it's important to judge writers on what they do write, and not on what they could write, as the latter list is one of infinite failures.
