Democracy in the Citizen; or, President of the World

Everyone had their own particular reasons for despising Times Select and I've already noted that one of mine was the fact that it put Stanley Fish off limits. (Nicholas Kristoff, too). Since the velvet rope has been lifted, I've been chastened by his read on the Bollinger-Ahmedinijad match at Columbia, and now alerted to this great project, Why Democracy?. It's a rich site, almost overwhelming, and I have only viewed a couple of the projects to far, but you have to check out You Cannot Hide from Allah, and the trailer for Taxi to the Dark Side.

But with 241 responses and counting, I wonder if Professor Fish isn't contemplating the erstwhile comforts of a nice peer-reviewed journal, just about now.
