Rainy Sunday Read

Yes, it’s quiet over here.

It’s quiet so’s I can listen to the rain pattering on my roof, while I plow my way through Mark Steyn’s latest:

As a rule I have stopped reading ideological and political books because increasingly they contain 40 interesting pages — which are always well-covered in the reviews and promo tours — and 250 pages of boredom-unto-torpor, but I’m halfway through Steyn, and not bored, yet. I am horrified, depressed, disturbed and a little mind-blown, but definitely not bored.

And yes, I’m recommending you pick this one up and read it. Give one to your kid to read before they leave for college, along with this and this.

Look for my Tuesday column at First Things to cover the book. Meanwhile, what are you reading?
