Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

Do you read City Journal? If you don't, you should. They are more consistently challenging, serious and intriguing than just about any other publication I've read. Most of the time, by the time I'm through the first couple of paragraphs of an article, I can write the rest in my head, and I stop reading. With many of the pieces in City Journal, I can't do that - first, because there's too much data in the piece that I'd miss if I don't actually read, and second, because I frequently can't predict the precise contours of the argument without actually reading it. Finally, and for me as a proud urbanite, most importantly, City Journal is perhaps the only magazine in the country that is both proudly urban-focused and conservative in orientation. Rudy Giuliani used to read it regularly, and I assume still does. Anyone on the Right who cares about the whole country, and not just the "red states" should do so as well.
