Articles Here and There

The blog has been suffering from neglect, in part because I’ve been even busier than usual with writing assignments.  Three of them should see print within the next couple of weeks.  In the forthcoming American Conservative — which should start showing up in shops and subscribers’ mailboxes late  next week — I have an obit piece on Ralph de Toledano and a review of Brian Doherty’s history of the libertarian movement, Radicals for Capitalism.

Then in the April Chronicles, I have a triple-review of Ramesh Ponnuru’s The Party of Death, Cristina Page’s How the Pro-Choice Movement Saved America, and William H. Colby’s Unplugged: Reclaiming Our Right to Die in America.  I should mention that I overshot my word-count for the Chronicles piece, so the printed version is somewhat condensed, out of necessity.  (I should have known better than to start out with a 500-word digression on Hellenistic history and Christian vs. pagan ethics.)  It’ll still be provocative, though.

    Daniel, I just saw on the LRC blog that you’ll be giving a talk on March 2nd on “The State of Campus Conservatism”. Will a video or transcript be posted anywhere?

    Probably there won’t be a transcript or video, but any interesting new ideas I develop will wind up in print sooner or later.

    Thanks for bringing the letter to my attention. It makes me regret all the more not taking the initiative to meet Ralph while I was his editor at The American Conservative. He was a class act.

    Interestingly, when I talked to him on the phone, he didn’t seem hard of hearing at all. The first time I called him, I spoke up as loudly as I could, thinking of the condition of my late grandfather’s hearing when he was Ralph’s age. But Ralph could hear me just fine at a normal volume. I felt pretty foolish for shouting down the phone at him!
