Take, for example, my conversation last week with the poet Leonard A. Slade, Jr., who is professor of Africana Studies at the University of Albany.
He was quite gracious and kind; in fact, on that evening, he could recall the topic of my most recent column, which I count as a good test of the sincerity of a compliment. But I felt it only fair to share with Dr. Slade a blog comment to the contrary that I had just approved for publication.

"He spoke for the right amount of time," said University at Albany Professor Leonard A. Slade Jr. of the department of Africana studies.
"I believe he spoke for about 18 minutes. After 20 minutes you start to lose your audience." Slade said Obama was "concise and precise." "The country felt inspired by the way he delivered the address. He spoke with grace and confidence," he said. "I admired his use of language to objectify his ideas." "[Obama] successfully identified problems and what we must all do together to rebuild America," Slade said.
