Bill McGurn’s Farewell

This is a lovely expression of the conservative bent, offered by WSJ columnist Bill McGurn who is leaving to take the helm of the New York Post editorial page. Particularly liked his description of the way conservatives think of human beings as “minds rather than mouths . . . When China transformed itself by moving from Mao to markets, the Journal’s editors were as dazzled by the results as anybody. They just weren’t surprised.”
