The Corner

You Like Us, You Really Like Us!

From a reader:

Jonah,

 

With the election over, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and all of the contributors to “The Corner” for your insight during this election.  You kept me informed, made me laugh, and helped me win more than a few arguments with my liberal friends (there are a few liberals in Massachusetts as you may know).    I am an irregular visitor to the corner most of the time, but since the conventions ended, I feel like I am there more than I am with my family!

 

So, Jonah, if you could just pass along my gratitude to all of your colleagues for the great service they are providing, I would appreciate it.  I’ll continue to read you in the print edition.

 

Best,

 

Jack

Civilization Requires Collective Common Sense

After the summer protests and rioting in many large cities, activists demanded a defunding, or at least radical pullbacks, of the police. So-called crime experts often concurred. So some city governments ignored public warnings and diminished their police presence despite a sharp rise in crime in many cities. ... Read More
