The Corner

The WSJ – NR Challenge

I think I need to clarify a misperception among some friendly and hostile readers alike. Some folks seem to think I have actual and honest ill-will to the gang over at the Journal. I can’t speak for anyone else, but that’s really not the case with me and my guess is I’m not alone. Indeed, I reside somewhere in-between the Journal and NR and I wouldn’t even be part of this debate. I just like the idea of it. I like big arguments over important issues between smart representatives of opposing  views. I particularly like these sorts of intramural debates on the right. I know tempers are running hot in certain quarters about immigration on both sides. And I certainly don’t think punches should be pulled on the substance. But, as far as I’m concerned, this is all just a disagreement within the family.
