Our Beloved Patron

Conor Friedersdorf and Your Working Boy, paying homage to Ignatius J. Reilly outside the former D.H. Holmes, on Canal Street. We thought of Mark Levin [2], and communiss, and bottle-green jackets.

Rod! Unclosed italics tag! Needs fixing!

I know I’m preaching to the choir but if you haven’t had the duck foie gras spread at Domenica you’re severely missing out.

Rod, you have italicized the universe 🙂
I’m afraid of looking out of the window lest all the signpost are now written in italics…

[NFR: Is it fixed now? It was not showing up at all on my Chrome browser, but I think I found the problem. Alas, I can’t tell if it’s fixed, because the problem wasn’t indicated on my browser in the first place. — RD]

Conor Friedersdorf is a crucial voice of reason and liberty at the Atlantic. I enjoy reading his writing for the way he can recognize the traditional view for what it is and not as rank bigotry.

Conor Friedersdorf!! How did someone that young get so reasoned and wise?

Oh how I marvelled at the political thought of Mark Levin. Rarely has someone erred so completely in reading Hobbes yet been so deeply convinced of being correct in his interpretation.

Whoa, whoa, whoa … you, Conor Friedersdorf, and Reihan Salam were all together in the same restaurant, at the same time? Doesn’t that violate some sort of [5] policy? What if there had been a terror attack or nuclear strike or something … our entire stockpile of conservative intellectuals worth reading would have been wiped out!

[NFR: It was a fun time, for sure. — RD]

THIS is what bothered me deeply about one of your comments about Katie Grimes the “theologian”. Comparing her to Myrna Minx! How dare you! Would Dr Grimes ever have the required theology and geometry to drive the Venerable Idnatius home from Baton Rouge? The question answers itself. Or herself. Or zerself.

Thank you for thinking of us. (No, I don’t wear bottle-green jackets, and I’m not Mark Levin employing the royal “we”).
