Reason #71 to Come on the NR Cruise – James Lileks

No, that isn’t Brando. Close though. It’s James Lileks, one of America’s wittiest writers (and it turns out he’s darned witty when he talks, too). Besides being a regular columnist for National Review, JL has a fun/funny/hysterical website that entertains on numerous topics: from the Gallery of Regrettable Food to Dubious Moments in Comic History, with dozens of eclectic delights in between. It’s easy to spend hours wandering the halls of Lilekia, where you’ll find his ever-updated blog, The Bleat. So visit, and enjoy. And then why not sign up for the National Review 2011 Caribbean Cruise, where James (who is terribly funny and good-natured in person – he was a big hit on our last year’s post-election voyage) and over three dozen top conservative speakers will be sailing (November 12-19 on Holland America’s beautiful Eurodam) with hundreds of fellow conservatives. They’ll be participating in 10 panel sessions, two “Night Owls,” enjoying warm camaraderie at three cocktail receptions and a wonderful cigar smoker sponsored by H. Upmann, discussing the upcoming elections and the top issues of the day, and so much more. You can find out more about this spectacular trip, and securely reserve your well-appointed, spacious, and affordable stateroom, at www.nrcruise.com.
