National Review

On the Plus Side

(Pixabay)

I’m a print guy. (That’s an expression you hear: “I’m a print guy.”) I write for print and I read print — i.e., newspapers and magazines, that I hold in my hand. Just as of old.

This is what I say. But I really should stop, because I do almost all my reading online — I can’t remember the last time I held a newspaper or magazine (though I enjoy it when I do) — and I write more for the Web than I do for print, so . . .

My rhetoric should catch up to reality.

Enough about me, though — what about you? National Review has a new membership service called NRPlus. Sign up here. You get the magazine — the print magazine — online. When you look at NRO, you get reduced advertisements. Vastly reduced. I know you want to support all our advertisers, but still . . . You get to join a Facebook group exclusive to NR readers. You converse in this group with NR writers and editors, as well as your fellow readers. You gain access to National Review’s vast archives. Etc.

This is a really good deal. It is sort of one-stop shopping, NR-wise. Is it good for NR? Yes, I think so — and also for the consumer, the reader, the participant. Win-win, as in a blessed market. Again, the key link is here.

Jesus Is Not the Joker

Actors love to think they can play anything, but the job of any half-decent filmmaker is to tell them when they’re not right for a part. If the Rock wants to play Kurt Cobain, try to talk him out of it. Adam Sandler as King Lear is not a great match. And then there’s Joaquin Phoenix. He’s playing Jesus ... Read More

Supreme Court Mulls Citizenship Question for Census

Washington -- The oral arguments the Supreme Court will hear on Tuesday will be more decorous than the gusts of judicial testiness that blew the case up to the nation’s highest tribunal. The case, which raises arcane questions of administrative law but could have widely radiating political and policy ... Read More

The Mueller Report Should Shock Our Conscience

I've finished reading the entire Mueller report, and I must confess that even as a longtime, quite open critic of Donald Trump, I was surprised at the sheer scope, scale, and brazenness of the lies, falsehoods, and misdirections detailed by the Special Counsel's Office. We've become accustomed to Trump making up ... Read More
