NR Cruise Is Winding Down, Like an Avalanche. And: Lileks!

One would think that the enthusiasm for any event peaks and then declines. Not so with the National Review 2010 Post-Election Caribbean Cruise. Last week 13 more cabins were booked. The pace does not abate.  

You can see in the ad that runs to the right of NR’s blogs that our sailing’s speaker line-up is superior. Well, we’ve just made it — superior-ier. We are happy to announce that the wise and witty James Lileks will be joining us on the High Seas this November 14-21, mixing and mingling with our happy contingent (now over 700!) as we discuss the recent elections and the future of conservativism and America.  

We couldn’t be happier that James (doing a tremendous job pinch-hitting for hiatusing Mark Steyn as NRODT’s back page columnist) will be part of the phenomenal speaker cast. And you won’t be happier if you experience yourself the wonderful trip we have in store for you this fall. So do join us: you can make that happen by visiting www.nrcruise.com to sign up and grab one of the few remaining staterooms. And when you’ve done that, head over to www.lileks.com so you can catch James’ special (extremely funny) take on American culture.

Hillbilly Elegy: Ron Howard’s Inverted Mayberry

Hollywood knows two registers when it comes to the white working class (WWC): sentimentalizing and condescending. WWCs are either cute, neighborly, and folksy, or they constitute a tawdry, alien life form. There are 130 million WWCs in our country, and yet nobody in Hollywood has the slightest grasp of them.

The Rural Way

Almost every national Election Night reveals the same old red/blue map. The country geographically is a sea of red. The coasts and small areas along the southern border and around the Great Lakes remain blue atolls. Yet when the maps are recalibrated for population rather than area, the blue areas blow up, ...

To ‘Steal’ an Election

Dan has a good article on the homepage, the main point of which is that the system worked, since Trump’s efforts to reverse the election failed. Certainly I agree with him about that. But he also finds charges that Trump tried to “steal” the election “overheated.” Since I made such a claim myself, I ... Read More
