Derb – I hear ya. But it might be fun to come up with the X Canons of NR Conservatism a la Russel Kirk’s 6 Canons. I’d be curious to know what everybody agrees on. We could also do something similar with NRO. Here we might have room to include certain general sentiments perhaps inappropriate to NR. Such as “An abiding allegiance to liquors hailing from the lands of Derb’s forebears.” Although, I’m partial to Irish Whiskey, so even that may be a problem.
