The Corner

By the Way . . .

As I mentioned in yesterday’s G-File, I’ve returned to Twitter for the time being, after a four-month hiatus.

For no discernibly good reason, I am back on Twitter for an indeterminate period of time. I’m still trying to figure out why I should — or shouldn’t — Tweet, not counting how incredibly gay it sounds for a grown man to say “tweet.” If you want to follow me, that’s fine, but please give me some privacy when I go through the curtain into the back room at the local video store. If you want to “follow” me on Twitter (again, for as long as that lasts), I’m at @JonahNRO. It’d be cool if I could break 10,000 followers with this announcement. But it’d be cooler if I could break a cinderblock with my mind.

Should you follow me? Well, I’ll try to announce media appearances more regularly there. It is easier than cluttering up the Corner with it. More importantly, pretty much all of my zombie commentary can be found there now.

The Gun-Control Debate Could Break America

Last night, the nation witnessed what looked a lot like an extended version of the famous “two minutes hate” from George Orwell’s novel 1984. During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More

Why We Can’t Have Wakanda

SPOILERS AHEAD Black Panther is a really good movie that lives up to the hype in just about every way. Surely someone at Marvel Studios had an early doubt, reading the script and thinking: “Wait, we’re going to have hundreds of African warriors in brightly colored tribal garb, using ancient weapons, ...

Obstruction Confusions

In his Lawfare critique of one of my several columns about the purported obstruction case against President Trump, Gabriel Schoenfeld loses me — as I suspect he will lose others — when he says of himself, “I do not think I am Trump-deranged.” Gabe graciously expresses fondness for me, and the feeling is ...
