It was probably unfair of me to single out Jordan as WASPish, or waspish for that matter. I guess I've felt miffed over some posts he's made referring to things I've said which collectively seem to imply that I don't "get it" ("it" being New York poets or what's aesthetically interesting to blog about or whatever). I feel like my scholarly earnestness and his ironic enthusiasm somehow abrade each other, like our modes of discourse inherently lead to misunderstanding and irritation. So I'd like to publicly state my respect and admiration for Jordan and his work, my desire to learn from him, and my regret for any hurt feelings.
