the guardian on the subject of irony

Denis Dutton, founder of Arts & Letters Daily (ALD) died early January.
This is from the Guardian editorial ‘In praise of… Arts & Letters Daily’:

Yet its creator promised no less than a place “where people could go daily for a dose of intellectual stimulation”. Which sounds a bit forbidding for what is a digest of thoughtful writing from across the web. What ALD does not offer is the usual linkbait: insta-comment about Sarah Palin or YouTube clips of samba-dancing babies.
