Didn’t We Meet on A Summer Cruise?

Well, maybe if it was on NR’s 2009 Mediterranean trip. But how about we meet on the National Review 2011 Caribbean Cruise, sailing this November 12-19 on Holland America Line’s luxurious Eurodam? Much more interesting than bumping into moi is meeting, say Mark Steyn and John Bolton. Or Fred Thompson and VDH, Bernard Lewis and James Q. Wilson, and many more top conservative pundits and academics and writers and columnists (like Cal and Mona and Deroy and Tony to name a few). Sure, you’ll chat with Jonah at the breakfast buffet, and diss Roman Genn when he loses to you at shuffleboard, but this trip is about so much more: It’s the 10 panel sessions, the two Night Owls, the three cocktail receptions, the late-night smoker (with H. Upmann cigars), and the dining on a couple of nights with our guest speakers. Plus the great cruise itself.

Meeting? Trust me, you’ll spend the week endlessly meeting—and conversing / dining / elbow-bending / puffing / singing (we’ve got some karaoke talents in the group)—with our tremendous line-up of top conservatives.

So: Meet us this November. To get complete information about this phenomenal trip, and to reserve you spacious and gracious stateroom (prices start at only $1899 a person), visit www.nrcruise.com.

Three Cheers for the Quiet Ones

People often dismiss shy, quiet characters in literature. Readers prefer to identify with Jo March, Elizabeth Bennett, or Anne Shirley -- those delightful, bold, and charming characters who made a deep impression on us when we first encountered them.

The Imaginary Trump

Like Andrew Jackson, Donald Trump is man who represents the age in which he lived. Whatever you may think of the age. Jackson embodied a generation of men who had risen and made their mark in a young country. He represented their desire for greater representation, even if it had costs for slaves and Indians. He ...
