Readers interested in what Pascal and Date have to say may be interested in visiting Database Debunkings. It has lots of articles written by one or both of them.

Personally, I recommend the articles written by Date because they are clearly, concisely, accurately, and calmly written. Pascal's tend to turn into a rant, which I wouldn't mind but he always seems to refer to his books rather than give a detailed justification of his arguments.
