Austin, don't be so harsh on the guy, or so quick 
to judge.  Maybe read a chapter of his book(s).  
(I think there's a chapter online somewhere.)
He *is* deliberately provocative, that's true.

I see a bit of myself in Margulis -- sort of a 
high-tech Luddite.

One of Margulis' main shticks is that monitors lie,
and are not to be trusted.  And of course, he really 
goes to town on the subject of monitor calibration.
