Whilst reviewing Ms. Susan Rubin Suleiman’s latest tome, Professor Perry Meisel deposits still more evidence that as long as the American system of higher education is in place there is no reason for maintaining a system of state insane asylums:
It is something of a commonplace to observe that the conjunction of three trends of thought over the last two decades-feminism, psychoanalysis, and deconstruction-has produced a powerful style of American academic criticism that cannot be ignored….
What Ms. Suleiman is saying at any given time, however, is hard to summarize; her prose reflects the kind of fluid feminist poetics for which she argues thematically. Feminist criticism, it appears, like feminist fiction, must be a kind of writing that refuses the straightforwardness of male writing, including its armory of values such as clarity, concision, and pointedness, all of which can be interpreted as masquerades for the male lust for power, replicating the structure of male sexual pleasure.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
