Thanks for that, and yes we are not that far apart.
I was not really surprised that the “tribute to Jane Fonda”
thing was actually a “gloss” on what they took to be Wolfe’s
overall message. Newspapers, especially ones like WaPo always do that, and it’s dishonest. Wolfe is a far smarter guy, and one of the first of an earlier generation to “stylishly” attack the Left’s conceits, starting with his takedown of the equally stylish “progressive” nonsense anatomized in “Radical Chic”.
Gotta run, leaving for a trip to Pennsylvania, where we’ve been invited to a Christmas cookie-baking “competition” at a friends. My cookie will be Chocolate chip with pistachios and orange zest flavoring. from the Gamine dans la cuisine website.
Have fun—those cookies sound spectacular.
