Crunchy-cons in the DC area might be interested in coming out to a do put on by the America’s Future Foundation on Wednesday March 12. It’s a free discussion of crunchy conservatism. AEI’s Steven Hayward and I are going to bat around a few ideas on this curious species of right-winger for the pleasure and edification of all and sundry. The event is going to be at the Fund for American Studies (1706 New Hampshire Ave., NW). Drinks at 7 p.m., dinner and discussion at 7:30. If you plan to show, write to firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know. Sorry, but my wife is out of town, so I cannot offer sachets of her homemade granola as lovely parting gifts. You’ll take your Turtle Wax and be happy.
