"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Sweet, sweet abridgment
I don't ever plan on reading Bill Clinton's bloated opus My Life, but now, thanks to the Weekly Standard, I don't have to and neither do you! The Standard's abridged version of the 900+ page tome really sums everything up nicely.
One thing you can tell even from the abridged version is that Bill Clinton writes like John Kerry talks--too lengthily. Clinton apparently is unaware of the rule that 90% of writing is knowing what not to write. Just as Kerry has a predilection for inserting half a dozen extraneous words into every spoken sentence, Clinton appears to be incapable of leaving out the smallest detail from his life. Both these men make the concise nature of our current president all the more welcome.
