When Bing West goes on National Review cruises, he’s always one of the most popular speakers. He also has one of the coolest first names. Microsoft should pay him a royalty for its search-engine naming rights.
Bing is of course a nickname. His real first name is Francis. And he’s this week’s podcast victim, talking about his new book on Afghanistan, The Wrong War.
Next week’s podcast: Andy Ferguson on college admissions.
