Vic Hanson is a Genius
Victor Davis Hanson, as many of you know, is one of my all times faves. He has to be the clearest thinking man on the planet, and redefines the term "civil discourse." I think the sign of a great communicator is someone who is able to convey ideas in a way that is easily understood. His writing is one of those rare combinations of simplicity and intelligence. I marvel every time I read his articles, usually slapping my forehead and saying something like, "He's so right on [issue X], and makes it sound so simple. Why didn't I think of that?" Read his piece, On Being Disliked, at National Review. Read every word of it. Then have a great weekend!
