Coming Tomorrow on NROriginals

On Friday we serve up a new edition of NROriginals, the free weekly newsletter that brings you select articles from the early days of NR. This time we look back at the August 16, 1974 issue, and feature three pieces: the cover story, which provides a speechwriter’s view of the final days of Vice President Spiro Agnew, a James Burnham column on the Cyprus coup and the Greek Colonels, and one critic standing athwart the too-muchness of the Now Generation yelling Stop! It’s all groovy conservatism. To make sure you receive it, and all future editions of NROriginals, sign up here. While there you can also get our other free publications: Jim Geraghty’s weekday must-read, Morning Jolt, our afternoon guide to online fare, NRO Digest, and Jonah’s wise and witty weekly rumination, The Goldberg File.

NR Staff — Members of the National Review editorial and operational teams are included under the umbrella “NR Staff.”
