I'm still too tired to do an extended commentary but there were a few things that I found interesting to read over the last few days:
TM Lutas " Garbage Cans and Pressure Cookers".
In reference to Peggy Noonan, whom I like, TM reminds us that elegant prose doesn't always mean particularly deep thinking.
, preaching among the heathen, at Dean Nation
. In all seriousness, I hope people like prak and Paul Berman succeed in their endeavors. Right and Left in this country should be able to disagree on all aspects of political economy while standing on a common ground in regard to the apalling threat Islamist terror poses toward free societies.
Of course, the Rule-Set Reset
( never let it be said that I am above shameless self-promotion).
The website for The Muslim American Society
. I've perused it and while these folks are not Islamist extremists they are not going to be first in line to criticize radical Islamism either. Or perhaps even get in that line at all.
For the Anglophiles, two posts from Geitner Simmons
- " Hitler in London "
and " Decline of the Aristocrats"
- informative and well-crafted as always.
