That "but" there is terrible -- but I know what he means, in the current atmosphere. https://t.co/HwSm8FfXoS

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson: "Are we going to be a narrow party that expresses ourselves in intolerant ways, or are we going to be a broad-based party that shows conservative principles but also compassion..." https://t.co/D909UMHjt5 https://t.co/Gl1M3VAsGd

Tom Simon was the legendary pro at the University of Michigan. When he was young, he was a hotshot in Ohio golf. Tom was thin and relatively tall. One sportswriter said, "Tom Simon, built like a 2-iron ..." The phrase recurred to me as I looked at Will Zalatoris.

If Will Zalatoris is of Lithuanian ancestry -- as I suspect he is -- he is the biggest thing to hit Lithuanians in American sports since Iggy Brazdeikis.

It all bullshit - made up. So many lies. Provable, demonstrable lies. Virtually every elected GOPer knows it - most will tell you as much off the record. But they're choosing to put him at the center of the party anyway. They're afraid of him & they're afraid of their voters. https://t.co/uVPMwPcpSE

I'll have more to say about Sahlins later (testy guy). But for now: I was going to write a big piece on Confucius Institutes, for National Review. But I found that Sahlins had already said all that was necessary -- in The Nation. Mirabile dictu. https://t.co/mftAbiuk3p

The April issue includes a new translation of "L'infinito," the Leopardi poem. For generations, this has been the most memorized poem in all Italy--sort of their "Tyger," "Invictus," or "If." Do we still memorize poems? (I don't; wish I did; should start.) https://t.co/lCpCbgFbMQ

The poetry section--a special section--of April's @newcriterion is delicious. Congratulations and thanks to @rogerkimball, Adam Kirsch, @JamesPanero, and the rest of the New Criterion crew. https://t.co/CL8gvMpeFz

To whom it may concern: My high-school basketball team, Ann Arbor Huron, was the Gonzaga Bulldogs of Michigan high-school hoops this year. We were undefeated going into the championship game today, but lost to Grand Blanc (to whom, congratulations). You done us proud, River Rats.

David French is still for the First Amendment, including free speech. He is four-square on our Anglo-American heritage. Guy is stubborn as a mule. Damn near weird. 👍 https://t.co/X6ayVy0ewQ

A short thread--if you've litigated/defended the First Amendment for any length of time, you know that there is always an issue ("emergency") of the day that puts creative minds to work trying to figure out ways to grant gov. more power over speech/expression. /1

I often quote a saying from golf: "Never up, never in." If you don't get your putt to the hole -- you have no chance of making it. In politics and other areas of life, if you don't pitch your ideas -- well, forget about it. Don't rule persuasion out! https://t.co/Zop3CjIilD

#RIP Prince Philip He told @PressClubDC 5/18/1990: "Thank you for very good lunch. Nostalgic it's nearly 40 years since first time I came to Washington...I came with Queen in President Truman's day...I'm not always as tactless as people make out." Told a Winston Churchill story: https://t.co/mTRkRkMv1g

This is is my dad, a Holocaust survivor, telling one story of lucky survival in the concentration camps. The Germans held 516 boys at one camp. They sent 10 cattle cars, designated to fit 50 people each, to Auschwitz --to be killed. They picked 16 boys to stay. My dad was one. https://t.co/kFlJXOmX5c

Kevin Faulconer, a former mayor of San Diego, is running for governor of California. He's a Republican. He can't win, can he? He thinks he can -- and, in fact, will. Interesting fellow, interesting situation. I have written a piece. https://t.co/pnJ6ucBapx

Prince Philip gave one of the most poignant answers I have ever heard in an interview. He had an unsteady upbringing, sent hither and yon. A reporter asked him, "What language did you speak at home?" Philip answered, "What do you mean, 'home'?"

Oh, heck, just one more, and I promise I’ll stop. Click on a fat ol’ tree — proud. With a lot to be proud about, I think. https://t.co/hjvtzZtgAR

One more click, if you’re in the mood. To me, this scene looks almost Japanese, somehow, though we’re many thousands of miles away from those attractive islands. https://t.co/m2BuwKm5CQ
