Jeder war ein grosser Krieger
Hielten sich fuer Captain Kirk
Das gab ein grosses Feuerwerk
Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
Und fuehlten sich gleich angemacht
Dabei schoss man am Horizont

I won’t be posting again until Monday. If you want to know why, click here… Easter Monday, I will be back and on the attack with an analysis of “Vertigo”; a takedown of Michelle Malkin’s rant against my cherry-blossomed hometown; “You may not be a liberal anymore if…”; another contest!!!; and maybe even something about immigration. (Hi, my name is Eve, and I’m a shank.) Later next week I’ll revisit the Andrew Sullivan-prompted debate, with reader mail and my responses.
In the meantime, why don’t you check these folks out?
Michael Dubruiel (aka Mr. Welborn): A fascinating review of Goodbye, Good Men! Dubruiel contends that the author basically got conned by hypertrad-in-doctrine, avant-garde-in-morals seminarians (“the daughters of Trent”). Dubruiel’s analysis of the book (needs fewer left-right labels) and the priest crisis (it’s about humility vs. arrogance) is as sharp as you’d expect from an ex-insider.Brink Lindsey: Lindsey plays Concepts in a Hat, linking Moby-Dick, terrorism, and globalization. Plus, Does isolationism exist?
Peter Pribik: OK, sure, there’s lots of good stuff here–Orwell on taking a knife to your writing; why James Taranto’s vacillation “between wry and righteous” doesn’t work; bourgeouis bombers. But this was my favorite post so far.
