Today at The Federalist, I wrote about Sarah Palin’s defamation suit against the New York Times and why it should go to trial.
Today at National Review, I reviewed Richard White’s The Republic for Which It Stands: The United States during Reconstruction and the Gilded Age, 1865–1896, which is due to be released next month. White re-examines a period in the nation’s history with many parallels to our current time. If you like American history, it’s a good book for you.
I have two new articles at The Federalist that I neglected to post here when I was away on vacation:
- If We Topple Every Statue Of An Imperfect Person They Must All Come Down. I discuss how the anti-Confederate statue craze can easily tip over into iconoclasm, and how we should avoid it.
- Why We Need A New Holiday To Celebrate The Fall Of Fascism. Why August 14 should be a federal holiday to remind us of our victory in the fight against fascism.
