I personally find it hard to not include a verbal jab or two, even when advocating civility in a discussion (a failure due to the "human condition", IMO). True, this statement probably should not have made "the final cut", but I still think he's fairly even-handed in his article and the statement does not overly distract from the post's overall theme (unless you really want it to).
