I readily admit my bias as an interviewer. I am a local Episcopalian, a liberal, and a fan of +Gene, and the paper I'm writing for is a liberal one. There is a time and a place for critical interviews, even-handed objective interviews, and friendly interviews all. My publication and I are the latter. So, while tough questions are fine and I respect critics who remain respectful themselves, any sarcastic or hostile "suggestions" will be promptly deleted and forgotten.
