THE LEFT: May 13, 2022 They may or may not have been playing the song “The World Turned Upside Down” when Lord Charles Cornwallis’s troops surrendered to Gen. George Washington at Yorktown in 1781, but there’s good reason to sing it now. PROGRESSIVES tell us that it is a violation of “democracy” to allow state legislators and governors elected by voters to...

REDISTRICTING: May 6, 2022 The congressional redistricting wars are mostly over. Much of the hoopla surrounding it is proving overheated. Before looking at this cycle’s results, a primer on the subject is in order.

CITIES: April 29, 2022 In recent weeks, I’ve noted how, as COVID-19 mask mandates fall by the wayside, the nation has been moving away from what now seems excessive risk aversion.

IN MY VIEW, that gets...

PANDEMIC: April 15, 2022 What were the benefits and costs of the COVID-19 restrictions implemented over the last two years? It’s a good time to ask that question, especially now that the masks are coming off and the lockdowns are canceled. ONE USEFUL scorecard comes from the prestigious National Bureau of Economic Research, in the form of a...

PANDEMIC: April 1, 2022 It feels like we’re turning a corner. Since the beginning of the calendar year, a lot of things have changed. More importantly, a lot of minds have changed as well. The world and the nation don’t look like they used to, and don’t seem likely to again any time soon. CONSIDER the masks. On New Year’s...
