If I remember correctly, RD referred to AA Gill as a loose cannon in one of RDs books (can't remember which one). I thought that description at the time was an astute observation on the part of RD and made me chuckle; the only adjective that would do Gill even more justice would be the addition of miniature as in a miniature loose cannon.

Gill squirts his bombastic gurgles out with such boring regularity, one can depend on them to take the place of sedatives and risk falling into slumber in the middle of one of his journalistic pieces.
