My friend Deroy Murdock has a warm and moving story out on NRO today about the current state of my home city of New Orleans. Well worth a read. Meanwhile, in this series of articles and interviews from the Washington Post — here, and here, and here and also here — the national media finally begin to really pound home what I’ve been writing (based on excellent New Orleans Times-Picayune reporting, of which the linked article above is just the most recent example, including this incredibly gut-wrenching interactive graphic) here for months, namely that the awful tragedy in New Orleans occurred, first, because of FEDERAL malfeasance, on the part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which ignored several warnings that its floodwall designs were dangerously insufficient. Meanwhile, in the mayor’s race in New Orleans which culminates with tomorrow’s elections, the embarrassing Mayor Ray Nagin still has a real chance of winning, multiple sources tell me, because of tacit help from the White House.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
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?
