The Corner

Re: Paging Andy McCarthy

Jonah, does this mean Hank Paulson will have unreviewable discretion to determine what Aaron Heilman, Pedro Feliciano, and Scott Schoenweiss are worth? Man, I bet they’re glad Paul O’Neill left Treasury to go back to the Yankees!

BTW, Cornerites, greetings from London. We had a great conference on free speech & jihad Monday (I spoke on libel tourism — I’m going to post the speech when I have time, but if interested, see my article in this month’s Commentary — subscription required I think). NR favorites all over the place — Frank Gaffney, David Price-Jones, John O’Sullivan, and Mark Steyn (who pulled double duty by doing a great job on our first panel then hitting it out of the park in a riotous, poignant and stirring speech at lunch). Other stellar participants included Roger Kimball, Douglas Murray, Melanie Phillips, Daniel Johnson, Judy Miller, Anthony Daniels (aka Theodore Dalrymple), Ayan Hirsi-Ali, and Herb London. It was just a privilege to be here among them.

Heading for another conference tomorrow.  Back in time . . . to get to the Big Shea for the last time on Saturday to check on my cratering investment.

The State of the Race for the House

Way back in January, I went through the then-34 seats where a Republican incumbent was retiring and concluded that most were in deeply red districts and not likely to flip to Democrats. Pollsters and media organizations are less inclined to conduct surveys of House races, both because there’s less public ... Read More
