My New Year’s Eve ritual

Every New Year’s Eve, I look back on the events of the past year.  I do so by reading Dave Barry’s Year in Review.  The month by month retrospective has the virtue of being very funny, which makes the survey of the year’s madness much easier to take.

Why Democrats hate you and Republicans are lousy politicians

Conservative satirist P. J. O’Rourke has written a devastating take-down of Democrats, though Republicans do not emerge unscathed.  You have got to read it.  Sample:

Republicans can, sometimes, understand the majesty of death—abortion as a matter of private conscience and evil paying the ultimate price. Republicans can, sometimes, understand the sacredness of life—each fetus as a being and how we must not take what we cannot give from any person, however bad. But no Republican understands the virtue of killing a baby too innocent to be born while sheltering and feeding a murderer until he gets fed up and tunnels out of Dannemora.

“We Don’t Deserve Alexander Hamilton On Our Currency”

You’ve got to read Mollie Hemingway’s piece in the Federalist:  We Don’t Deserve Alexander Hamilton On Our Currency.  It defies excerpting.  It covers far more than just the woman-on-the-$10-bill issue.  I can’t explain it.  Just read it.  You’ll be glad you did.  Most of you.  Quite a few of you.
