The Editorial in JSE 26:1 suggests the need for a scientific analogue of Slonimsky’s one on erroneous and intemperate judgments in music (Lexicon of Musical Invective: Critical Assaults on Composers Since Beethoven’s Time). Something like that is already available in Cerf and Navasky’s The Experts Speak: The Definitive Compendium of Authoritative Misinformation (1984/1998) and Mission Accomplished! Or How We Won the War in Iraq: The Experts Speak (2008). Highly enjoyable.
