Peggy Noonan: Miracle on Fulton Street (FreeRepublic mentioned!)
Opinion Journal ^ | 12/14/2001 | Peggy Noonan

Posted on 12/13/2001 8:10:39 PM PST by Pokey78

Edited on 04/23/2004 12:04:01 AM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

The El, the book party and the site of the Virgin.

My friends, this is the kind of column I used to do now and then before the world changed. I tell you what I've been doing and thinking and if you're interested you get a cup of coffee and sit down and read along, and if you're not you can go back to OpinionJournal's main page, or Drudge, or Salon, or Free Republic.

You know, this isn't one of Peggy's grand columns, but I love it, because it gives me a glimpse of New York that otherwise I would not see. Thanks, Pokey!

If it's not too much trouble, could you add me to your "ping" list? I'm a longtime lurker, recent poster to Free Republic.

Thank you in advance.

Noonan looks at the world, sees and treasures things the rest of us often overlook. She and her son are national treasures.

We work so hard to find happiness. But more and more I think of what a friend told me on the phone 10 years ago after I had written an essay on the subject. He called and said: "This is a famous quote from someone, I forget who, and this is what you mean. 'Happiness is a cat. Chase it and it will elude you, it will hide. But sit and peacefully do your work, live your life and show your love and it will silently come to you and curl itself upon your feet.' "

I believe (from an earlier article) her son at least reads FR, so she may already be here among us!

I love the way Peggy writes. After having heard her read her book "What I Saw At the Revolution", I can HEAR her reading to me when I read her columns. Wierd, huh? She has such a soft spoken voice, and she writes exactly the way she speaks, so it's easy to imagine her voice as I read her words.

My pleasure. Peggy Noonan is a supremely gifted writer. She is truly a treasure to the conservative movement -- and always a joy to read.

Really? I'd love to ask her some questions. She has such and gentle, yet firm disposition. And she's so danged witty. I hope one day she'll either register or "out" herself so I can ask her some questions about the great Ronaldus Maximus! I miss President Reagan.

If only Dowd would stop long enough to shut her pie hole and pay attention.

Another beautiful articulate conservative woman. I think more men will turn conservative in the future just so they won't have to look at liberal women.

Or, do as I did, and sit down at Free Republic AND read Peggy Noonan's most excellent column.
