Even as it disappointed on the field, the Super Bowl supplied racial drama. The historical celebration, that a black coach was finally coaching a Super Bowl team—and not just one, but both coaches, both teams—was all over the airwaves. Even ads brought it up. Hooray.
Time to get on my hobbyhorse. I gather that on Read More
Sorry writers and readers, I’m still trying to get up to speed on comment problems.
Here are 2 guys who couldn’t be hear thru normal channels. The first was in response to the issue of censoring comments, something I just started doing.

On the cover of this week’s edition of Pat Buchanan’s American Conservative, Hillary takes fire from another direction: The anti-war, anti-Israel right, to whom her support for her husband’s interventions in the Balkans seem particularly damning, as does her hard line on Iran. The cover story’s author, the libertarian Justin Read More
“Hey, man!” hollered a young Latino kid in a Yankees cap, recognizing Patrick J. Buchanan, the former Nixon and Reagan speechwriter and three-time Presidential candidate, from his TV show. He was on West 34th Street.

The fact is, of course, that baseball-even playoff baseball, and even an all–New York World Read More
PHILADELPHIA-Have you read enough of these datelines? Hang in there, friends: It won’t take long, and then you and I shall be finished with this business.
Allow, please, for two observations before your devoted correspondent packs his bags:

Hillary Clinton has a new opponent, but that does not change the case against her.
She is no more a New Yorker now than when she began her listening tour. The historian Sean Wilentz tried to address this defect by pointing out, in a New York Times Op-Ed piece, that New York has long been Read More
A great deal has been made about the new alliance between two perpetual presidential candidates, Lenora Fulani and Patrick J. Buchanan. Ms. Fulani, as many readers will recall, has been a poisonous, albeit deservedly obscure, presence in New York politics for years. Mr. Buchanan, of course, is known for his work on behalf of Richard Read More
