Another Dead White Male

Poor Derrida, "Abstruse Theorist Dies", NYT
front page
:

Other critics found it disturbing that obscure academics could presume
to denigrate a Sophocles, Voltaire or Tolstoy by seeking out cultural
biases and inexact language in their masterpieces. "Literature, the deconstructionists frequently proved, had been written by entirely the wrong people
for entirely the wrong reasons," wrote Malcolm Bradbury, a British novelist and
professor, in a 1991 article for The New York Times Book Review.

So W. would bellow,  "How can you profess, when you say 'Wrong
people, wrong reasons'?  You just can't!  That's not what a professor
does."

Then he might add, "Want some wood?"
