On the Road Again

I had an absolutely great time last night “moderating” a panel with Hugh Hewitt, Dennis Prager, and Bill Bennett last night here in Atlanta.

Great crowd. Nice folks. Good times.

Anyway, I’m about to board a plane to Houston for a day of safety training and whatnot before I head out tomorrow to an offshore oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Seems like overkill to me, but they’re calling the shots.

Meanwhile, here’s my column on Pelosigate and for those who missed the plug yesterday, here’s my essay on Albert Jay Nock from the magazine.

The charge is strange, ... Read More

TV Before PC

Affixing one’s glance to the rear-view mirror is usually as ill-advised as staring at one’s own reflection. Still, what a delight it was on Wednesday to see a fresh rendition of “Those Were the Days,” from All in the Family, a show I haven’t watched for nearly 40 years. This time it was Woody Harrelson ...

The Democrats’ Other Class War

There is a class war going on inside the Democratic party. Consider these two cris de couer: Writing in the New York Times under the headline “America’s Cities Are Unlivable — Blame Wealthy Liberals,” Farhad Manjoo argues that rich progressives have, through their political domination of cities such as ...
