Re: ‘The Mass Murderer . . .’

Not to play “me too,” Mark, but — me too. I wrote about Gosnell about six trimesters ago. I wrote about these crimes in my column of October 31, 2011, here. What happened in that abortuary was a lot grislier than anything you can see or imagine on Halloween.

NR editorialized about the matter in its November 28, 2011, issue. In that same issue, I had a piece on Chen Guangcheng, the “blind peasant lawyer” who was still in China, being tortured almost to death. He had blown the whistle on forced abortions and sterilization.

If Salon or other publications don’t want to deal with abortion, fine, but they shouldn’t accuse the rest of us of not.

Winslow Homer’s Art, through the Camera Lens

The Bowdoin College Museum of Art's show Winslow Homer and the Camera takes a perceptive, original look at one of America's great art visionaries. It's special for many reasons. It takes a much-considered artist — Homer (1836–1910) is among the gods atop the heap of American artists — and finally makes ... Read More
