From my most recent NRO article, on the recent G-8 summit: “The leaders were like a cutaway drawing of Santa’s workshop, with each elf banging away in some purposeful task, yet conveying a slightly comical, portentous busyness. . . . The summit meetings are a proliferating taxation on the time of the participants and the attention span of the world. Almost nothing of the slightest note results from them, and they seem to take place almost constantly.”
Whether you agree or disagree, your comments are, as always, most welcome.
