A Great Day for Conservatism, and New York City 

We’re absolutely delighted that our dear colleague and friend Reihan Salam has been selected to become the new president of the Manhattan Institute. He will be taking over for Larry Mone, who is retiring after leading MI for 24 years, during which it has become an indispensable conservative institution, employing some of the finest thinkers on the right.

Anyone who knows Reihan understands why he’s such a great pick for this job — he’s brilliant and creative, with a knack and passion for finding and developing new talent, and he has an abiding interest in the quality-of-life and urban issues at the core of MI’s mission. He’s also a born-and-bred New Yorker who cares deeply about the city. On top of all this, he’s a wonderful human being who commands the admiration of people across the political spectrum.

We wish Reihan the very best in the new gig, and we thank him for all he’s done to make NR smarter and more interesting.

Mel Gibson’s Beastmode

Late-period Mel Gibson is probably the best Mel Gibson; in film after film after film he plays ornery old bastards with such conviction that each successive outing feels like a personal trip to the confessional. He doesn’t need the money anymore, and most of these roles are in indie movies that pay very little ... Read More
