It is written in our contracts here at NRO that on our birthday’s we must ask our beloved readers to subscribe to the paper sister (mother? father?) of NRO, NRODT (National Review on Dead Tree). We should just call this birthday-bonanza week. If you didn’t subscribe on Jonah’s birthday, there is still time. Today marks the day one K-Lo was born, an Andrew Stuttaford, and, well, William Shatner. Between the three of us, one of us must make you want to subscribe to NRODT (and if you find these–or over-posting me–annoying, rest assured you might at least get these pitches to stop one day when we are confident NRODT has conquered the world of magazine readers). In fact, if we get enough subscriptions today so I can earn my NRODT patch already, I might even consider lifting the Star Trek ban (that, my gift to Andrew and to Jonah belatedly). Maybe. If you have already subscribed, always feel free to donate to this webzine you’re tuned into. Enough of those and we might start being able to offer Bee Gees CDs with your contributions.

Or, who knows, maybe a Thursday ... Read More
Regardless of the fate of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, the Senate should censure the ranking Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein. Her deception and maneuvering, condemned across the political spectrum, seriously interfered with the Senate’s performance of its constitutional duty to ... Read More
Americans keep dividing into two hostile camps. It seems the country is back to 1860 on the eve of the Civil War, rather than in 2018, during the greatest age of affluence, leisure, and freedom in the history of civilization. The ancient historian Thucydides called the civil discord that tore apart the ... Read More
It happens every single time there’s a public debate about sex crimes. Advocates for women introduce, in addition to the actual evidence in the case, an additional bit of “data” that bolsters each and every claim of sexual assault. You see, “studies” show that women rarely file false rape claims. ... Read More
