Quin: I don’t understand this need to speak about Jack Nicklaus in hushed tones. Isn’t one St. Jack (Danforth) enough? In his heyday everyone respected Jack Nicklaus as not only our finest golfer but toughest competitor. As such he was always quite an intimidating presence who by design or not always kept opponents on their guard — and the public at a distance. He probably didn’t become a subject of warm affection until he stunningly won the Masters at 46 twenty years ago. I don’t think Larry Henry was being nasty toward Jack — just blunt, with a bit of friendly needle, in a way Nicklaus of all people would appreciate. Larry was above all dealing with Jack as a golf book author and contrasting the cold, impersonal corporate tone of Jack’s ghosted volume with Bobby Jones’s authentic voice. He also notes: “Nicklaus got much more human in his later years.” That pretty much sums it up for me.

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?
