Peter Lawler, RIP

Tue, 23 May 2017 18:00:59 +0000

(Steven Hayward) I’ve just caught up with the sad news this morning of the passing of Peter Lawler of Berry College at the too-soon age of 65. Peter was one of the most interesting and original conservative voices in academia, and he is irreplaceable. There was no one who understood—and practiced—liberal arts education rightly understood better than Peter. Among other things, Peter has to be counted as one of the best interpreters



Heather Mac Donald’s dissent

Tue, 23 May 2017 16:36:01 +0000

(Scott Johnson) A few essays have taken their place in the great tradition as masterpieces of intellectual demolition. Among such classics stands Samuel Johnson’s Review of Soame Jenyns’ A Free Enquiry Into the Nature and Origin of Evil.

(John Hinderaker) Facts are dribbling out about the terrorist attack in Manchester last night. The suicide bomber has not been identified as of this writing, but it is reported that he was “known to the authorities.” Another known wolf; but known wolves generally don’t turn out to have been as lonely as one might assume (as opposed to, say, most school shooters). A second 23-year-old man is under arrest. Time will tell



CNN’s Political Hit Job on Sheriff Clarke

Tue, 23 May 2017 02:37:41 +0000

(John Hinderaker) On Saturday, CNN issued a report on a master’s thesis that was written by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke in 2013. CNN’s report was titled: “Sheriff David Clarke plagiarized portions of his master’s thesis on homeland security.” Only, if you read the article, it turns out that Sheriff Clarke didn’t do much, if anything, wrong. CNN’s strongest claim was that Clarke footnoted some paragraphs with citations to his original sources,
