That would be a mistake.
Despite any shortcuts he took in his article on gun control, Fareed Zakaria is still one of the most insightful commentators on both national and international political issues. He sees the relevance of facts whose relevance no one else has spotted. He sees through disinformation. He sees each issue from a novel and useful angle. He is also an extraordinarily clear writer. I eagerly read his columns whenever they appear, and learn something even from the columns with which I do not completely agree.
If he is denied a prominent forum, we will all be the poorer for having been deprived of his insights.
