Okay, I know there are a lot of people here who are very well versed in the finer points of logical arguments. A co-worker forwarded this to me earlier and I got such a kick out of reading it, and the fallacies contained therein, that I thought I would post it up here.
I should state, in the interest of disclosure, that I am an MLS-holding librarian, though not a member of the ALA (which I probably should be, but I'm lazy like that).

How many logical fallacies can you find in his article (repetitions count)?
I'll hold off saying how many I found so as not to jinx anything. And a belated thanks to whoever posted that link to nizkor.org's fallacies page...it helped.
