The Corner

Sing it Sister!

From a lefty lurker:

You know, I started coming to NRO Online as a very liberal, left wing

gal out of an interest in reading the other side’s ideas–preferably in

a non invective laden, thought provoking environment.  I may seldom

agree with him, but I figured anything that Uncle Bill Buckley wrought

would, at least have a certain decorum and standard for intellectual

discourse. And I found that here so I keep coming back. For years now,

almost every day. Several times a day. I don’t think my mind has gotten

changed on any of the left/right issues I already disagreed with you

folks on. But I appreciate the chance to read your ideas. I WANT to try

and see as many sides to issues as possible.

But the fringe benefit of coming here—and something I am always

promoting to my like minded and apolitical friends about your site–is

the wealth of quirky, entertaining stuff like your link to the

anti-spammers and Derb’s treehouse etc. etc. This place is worth

visiting for that stuff alone, even if you didn’t also intersperse some

weighty socio-political discussion in between!

There Is No COVID Plan

The 2020 campaign for president has been surprisingly empty of substance since Joe Biden became the nominee. The Republicans notably didn’t even bother updating their party platform.
