Funeral Services for Joe Sobran

For those who will be in the Washington, D.C. area and wish to pay their last respects to Joe, there will be a Tridentine Requiem Mass on Tuesday, October 5, at 1PM at St. John the Beloved Church in McLean, Va. (6420 Linway Terrace).

If you can’t be there, please consider a prayer for the repose of his soul. And if the name “Joe Sobran” draws a blank, which it very well might for many younger conservatives, understand that it’s worth knowing a little about this talented, influential, and controversial man. I recommend this remembrance of Joe by W. James Antle III — it’s a short, fair, and well-written retrospective.

Kevin then accuses me of being a stouthearted defender of the “Real America.” If ... Read More
