Is that the sound of dueling banjos I hear?

Thanks to Chris for pointing out the outrage du jour, Human Events Online's list of the ten most harmful books of the 19th and 20th centuries. A list which features, among others, Das Kapital, The Feminine Mystique, and Dewey's Democracy and Education. Chris has posted his own counter-list, which includes both the OT and NT.

Andrea notes that if you include Human Events' "honorable mentions" the list becomes really a great summer reading list that could easily be mistaken for a Great Books course syllabus.
