My Kind of Town

I just got back from speaking at the National Conference of Editorial Writers convention in Chicago. I was pleasantly surprised to find the questions on immigration to be thoughtful and entirely lacking in liberal cant. I was also amused to see Jonah Goldberg and Arianna Huffington (or at least the brochures promoting their columns) cheek-to-cheek at the exhibitors booth for Tribune Media Services. According to his flier, Jonah ’s “wicked brew of commentary” is “part of the changing face of conservatism,” and “will add spice to your editorial page.” Arianna, on the other hand, supposedly “says what most politicians and columnists fail to articulate: the thoughts and feelings of average Americans.” Maybe that was supposed to read “the thoughts and feelings of average L.A. multi-millionaire self-promoters.”
