Always Check Your References
The Pundit ex Machina is shocked that Mark Steyn lists The Nation among the journals for which he writes. If he had clicked on the logo, he would have seen that this is the good Nation, "Thailand's independent online news & information service", not the other Nation, the one that's been going downhill for over a century. (It was founded in 1865, and Henry James started reviewing for it the same year, and later published many of his short stories in it.)

Oh thank god. Suddenly, the world makes sense again.
I don't see the problem even if it was the Commie-apologist Nation. The advantages are many. First, Steyn gets paid to bring some sense into the reading of twits. Second, it may cause some of the said twits to reconsider their irrationalities. Third, it might induce apoplexy in some of the twits who deserve it. A win-win situation.
Your quite right Michael. I get the sense that Steyn would take that assignment, just for the fun of it.
