Wolf Redux

Call me politically correct (my view on political correctness is that while academic leftists could use less of it, libertarians could use more of it) -- but I'm puzzled at Gene Healy's reaction to the Naomi Wolf / Harold Bloom story. In criticising Wolf for"typing breathlessly about this incident twenty years after the fact," he ignores the reasons she gives for doing so; they seem like pretty good reasons to me, and I hope her example helps to strengthen the courage of others. (I also don't see why Gene finds the vomiting incident implausible -- unless explainable in terms of alcohol or physical revulsion. It doesn't seem so to me.)
