“I notice that Jonah mentions the honor to be bestowed on Bob Bartley by Hillsdale College, but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Bartley (and your own Bill Buckley) were honored last week at the Manhattan Institute’s Alexander Hamilton Dinner, and not a peep was mentioned in The Corner, or NRO. Wonderful event.”
Tis true. Some of us must have enjoyed too much we couldn’t put it in words. In all seriousness, it was a terrific event. WFB was in fine form. David Brooks, John Stossel, and Paul Gigot spoke and were excellent (Brooks, introducing WFB, was hilarious) and philanthropist Peter Flanigan was inspiring, talking about the power of private schools.
