Great Man, Good Man

 

In the course of my normal web travels, I learned that Ed Capano, longtime publisher of National Review, is retired effective today. When I was just starting out in New York, I got to know Ed and will never forget how kind and helpful he was to me. NRO has some great tributes up this […]

Sick Freak

 

Ingrid Newkirk has posted her “will” on the PeTA website. Words fail me. Just read it. The fact that anyone actually listens to this obviously insane person never ceases to amaze me…

Count Me In

 

Quin’s thoughtful piece on the homepage this morning really resonated with me and I hope our readers will take a moment to read it. I too have been deeply demoralized by recent developments both at home and abroad. I joked to a friend the other evening, “Eh, the way things are going, I’ll give civilization […]
