Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at [email protected] with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “lazer,” who commented, of senior writer Liel Leibovitz’ argument that the bullied should be taught to fight back, “Didn’t expect much else from Liel ‘guns for everyone’ Leibovitz.”

Not sure whether he should get Ruth Wisse’s Jews and Power (for its defense of retaliation) or David Mamet’s The Wicked Son (which helps explain Liel). Instead, how about we go with Douglas Century’s Barney Ross, which is concerned, literally, with counterpunching?
