There was an interesting exchange over my CSK post. For the "last word," I highly recommend Peggy Noonan's op-ed piece in last Friday's Wall Street Journal. Here's how she starts: "Listen, I watched the funeral of Coretta Scott King for six hours Tuesday, from pre-service commentary to the very last speech, and it was wonderful—spirited and moving, rousing and respectful, pugnacious and loving. The old lions of the American civil rights movement of the 20th century were there, and standing tall. The old lionesses, too. There was preaching and speechifying, and at the end I thought: This is how democracy ought to be, ought to look every day—full of the joy of argument, and marked by the moral certainty that here you can say what you think." (Ms Noonan was President Reagan's principal speech writer.)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
