Not my idea of a leader

Harry Maryles said something in the comments to this post of his that kinda freaked me out.

Who are the living modern orthodox "rabbinic greats" in your opinion?

Rav Hershel Shachter is the only one I can think of today. Although I might put Rav Mordechai Willig in that category too. Until a few months ago, it was RAL [I assume he's referring to the late Rav Aharon Lichtensten]. He had no peers.

Wow, that's slim pickings. One person. I guess if Rav Shachter is not your man, you're just out of luck. Those charedim are practically rolling in gedolim! Lucky blokes!

Rav Herschel Shachter is your idea of a Modern Orthodox Gador HaDor ("Great One of the Generation)?!”  This is what I had to say about Rav Schachter almost 11 years ago.

But you don't have to take just my word for it.
