From a great height. (Photo courtesy John Trainor)

Welcome to the Week In Review, published every Friday on the blog. WiR is a collaborative effort of TAC’s Editors and contributors. Thought- and mirth-provoking articles we stumble across are placed here, along with an arch tagline.


Preparing for a Majority

“The Thirty Years’ War,” Kevin Williamson, National Review

THE EDITORS: $$$ “Being the guy who gets up and demands the repeal of Obamacare might get you elected president; being the guy who fixes the damned thing simply makes you a target for talk-radio guys who have never run for nor held an elected office but who will nonetheless micturate upon your efforts from a great height.

Everybody wants to run for president. But somebody has to save the country.”

The Modern Dilemma

“No Happy Harmony,” Elizabeth Corey, First Things

THE EDITORS: A professor at Baylor University discusses the classic post-feminism question.

The GOP & the K-12 Money Pit

The Party of Lincoln

“Elbert Guillory: Bear-Killer, Gadfly, Statesman,” Joel Gehrke, National Review

Reductionism Rebuffed
