My article on the conservative scholar Harry V. Jaffa is in the new issue of National Review:
Jaffa may be the most important conservative political theorist of his generation. … Modern conservatism’s focus on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution — never absent, but increasingly prevalent in these tea-party times — owes much to Jaffa and his circle.

Subject: 1st Assassin = Lost Sleep!
I thought I’d sneak it into my schedule by reading 5 or 10 pages an evening. By the fourth night, I was so caught up in the book that I finished it -then realized it was 3 AM. I did not relish getting up at 5:30 to go to work the next day, but really enjoyed the book. Thanks for a great read!
To lose your own sleep, get a copy of The First Assassin.
