Only 10 Cabins Left for NR Alaska Cruise

A strong surge in bookings these last three weeks has drained available cabins in the NR allotment: as of this morning just five “Superior Suites” and five “Deluxe Outside” staterooms remain. If you want to join us on the great trip aboard Holland America’s Noordam from July 29 to August 5th — in the company of John Bolton, Arthur Laffer, Victor Davis Hanson, Michael Steele, Ed Gillespie, Dick Morris, John Hillen, Richard Allen, Robert Bork, Bill Rusher, Jonah Goldberg, Rich Lowry, Kathryn Jean Lopez, Kate O’Beirne, Ramesh Ponnuru, and Jay Nordlinger — you’d better snag one of the few remaining cabins now. You can get complete info about this spectacular sojourn, and book your stateroom, at (BTW: we’ll gladly “wait list” you in a particular cabin grade if that’s your preference.)

School Shootings and the Incentives of Violence

Today’s Morning Jolt discusses school shootings and the common difficulties of the teenage years, and I thought of another aspect that I forgot to include -- the degree to which our society, in its reaction to violence, inadvertently rewards that violence. Every teenager wants attention, to be recognized, to ... Read More
