The reviews of my review are in. Representative email from reader A:
I know you are maturing as a writer, but I couldn’t even finish your article on Fukuyama, it was so dull. I used to look forward to your articles, ‘cause they were fun, accurate, interesting, and your personality really shown through. Sadly, lately your articles are insightful, but lacking in the personality that I enjoyed so much. I know you’re not a trained monkey here to just entertain me, but I do miss the old Jonah.
And representative email from reader B:
Your Fukuyama article reprinted on the NR website may be your best, most coherent (not that your work is incoherent–this is just uber-coherent) work yet. Very well done.
