Mr. Hanson may write well, I don’t know. I can’t ever read him because I can’t get past the 3 names.
Are there too many Victor Hanson’s in the world, such that Victor Davis Hanson become necessary? 3 names like that make me shudder. It just feels like he is full of himself, before I get past the byline.
Donning flame-suit now, lol.
you might want to try getting past the 3 names, he writes good stuff.
Don’t judge a book by its cover.
Your loss. Bad for you.
Read articles by Thomas Sowell instead. Sowell will say the same thing in half the words that anyone can understand.
I understand the written word of Victor Hansen but much prefer the words written by Mr. Thomas Sowell.
Yes, there's much to be admired in your sense of perspective and priority.
Perhaps Nickelodeon.com would be better suited for you, from an intellectual and maturity point of view.
Francis Ford Coppola used to say: “Never trust a man with three names!”
When he chose his own website name, he limited it to just 2 words http://victorhanson.com/ You can read all his articles there, LOL. Or maybe not, because his helpers are using 3 words now there too...
I see the use of complete name as a sign of respect from others. And VDH deserves this respect. But you’d never know...
>>Donning flame-suit now, lol.
You should. To not read one of the top five commentators writing today because of that reason is extraordinarily weak.
VDH, Krauthammer, Steyn, Sowell, and Goldberg.
It seems to me more an act of respecting the memory of ancestors than pretension.
Simply follow politics closely enough for 5 to 10 years and you will be able to understand precisely what he is saying about whom. And understand his tremendous insights and ability to clearly explain them.
A quick google search turns up quite a few Victor Hanson's, not all of them, no doubt, with the most savory of reputations. Why run a risk of confusion?
