Human Exceptionalism

Goodbye Human Exceptionalism, Hello The Corner

This is the last post on Human Exceptionalism.

No, I am not taking my football and going home. Nor have I been given the boot.

Rather, NRO has invited me to opine exclusively on the site’s very popular The Corner, just as I do now here, expanding my potential readership. And so I shall, without any changes in emphases or subject matters.

Worry not: Past HE posts will still be archived under my name and fully searchable on the site.

The Corner is a scrolling type blog with many posts published daily about different subjects. On a busy day, a post can quickly be moved off the front page.

If you want to make sure not to miss a post–either to cheer or jeer–I always link my published writing on Twitter, where my handle is @forcedexit.

I also post links to all of what I write on my Facebook page.

Thanks so much to everyone who have supported Human Exceptionalism over the years, and its predecessor, Secondhand Smoke.

So, this isn’t goodbye. It isn’t even au revoir. It’s, “See you at The Corner!

Murder Mystery: An Old Comedy Genre Gets Polished Up

He made some very funny manboy comedies (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy) followed by some not-so-funny manboy comedies, and when he went dark, in Reign over Me and Funny People, ...

Pro-Abortion Nonsense from John Irving

The novelist has put up a lot of easy targets in his New York Times op-ed. I am going to take aim at six of his points, starting with his strongest one. First: Irving asserts that abortion was legal in our country from Puritan times until the 1840s, at least before “quickening.” That’s an overstatement. ... Read More
