Haven’t read much of Cecil’s older stuff, have you?
In the days of yore, Cecil wrote with a very sharp tongue, and used a version of wit that had to be given some latitude to be appreciated. Somewhere in the late-'90s, Cecil’s tone changed, and now he tends to write in a more informative fashion, sans most of the snarky humor.
That’s why I prefer the classic columns, acutally.
