Phyllis Schlafly at the podium.
Ginia Bellafante does one of those “home” stories that’s not really a home story but an interview with a famous person. Still, it’s pretty tantalizing. Phyllis Schlafly’s house looks like a nice hotel lobby. The office is on the second floor. That’s about what we know about the place.
But the money quote is this:
So it is a home story, after all!
It’s a nice piece, actually, though I have to quibble with this line:
Does that mean she “home-schooled” them until first grade? I think there’s an anachronism here. Even in New York, where cabals gather to decide the results of elections, those of us who grew up in the 1960’s and 1970’s know that many of us didn’t go to school till first grade; some people did Kindergarten for a half day, though attendance was spotty. And yet somehow I wouldn’t say I was “home-schooled through age 7.”
