Apres Thanksgiving

Good morning and happy post-Thanksgiving. A few new items...
  • It's not quite as popular as baseball, but home-schooling is becoming an American pastime. The reason, beside the religious-nut element? public schools are too much like camp. See "Revenge of the Home-Schoolers..."
  • Robert Novak is king of that paradox of the Washington punditocracy: terrifically informed yet analytically dim and intellectually corrupt, because drunk on that Molotov cocktail of America-First presumption: ideology and nationalistic chauvinism. See "Robert Novak, Caudillo's Knave..."
As always, plenty more in Candide's Daily Journal... Thanks for
