Eddie Lazear Has Jumped the Shark
Why Oh Why Can't We Have a Better Press Corps? (Yet Another Washington Post Edition)

The American Scene

If you are still subscribing to the New Republic or the Nation or to National Review or to others of that ilk, consider that you could improve the world by (a) redirecting your attention to the website of the newly-revamped American Scene: An ongoing review of politics and culture, and (b) sending your subscription dollars to the American Scene instead. (But this doesn't apply to the American Prospect: the American Prospect is, I think, at the moment best-of-breed.)

Smart. Reality-based. The reality they see is a very different reality from the one I see, but they are out to inform rather than to mislead.
