    RedState ^ | 12/16/2010 | Caleb Howe
    A Lame Duck Christmas ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when scared like a mouse, A lame duck was stirring, Both in Senate and House. November elections, still hung in the air (though most of the Democrats just didn’t care.) Their omnibus nestled, all snug and unread, And visions of pork barrels danced in their heads. San Fran Nan in her kercheif, with gums all aflap, Had a DREAM their agenda they still could enact. Though the voters had risen and made such a clatter To Nancy and Harry that just did not matter. They wish for no asking, and hope...

    Felicia Hemans ^ | 11-25-10
    The breaking waves dashed high On a stern and rock-bound coast, And the woods against a stormy sky Their giant branches tossed; And the heavy night hung dark, The hills and waters o'er, When a band of exiles moored their bark On the wild New England shore. Not as the conqueror comes, They, the true-hearted came; Not with the roll of the stirring drums, And the trumpet that sings of fame; Not as the flying come, In silence and in fear; They shook the depths of the desert gloom With their hymns of lofty cheer. Amidst the storm they sang,...

    Janette Turner Hospital is the author of Orpheus Lost and other books, and a professor at Columbia. She sent MFA students at her old school, the University of South Carolina, the following note about their inferiority. It is amazing. Hospital sent this note to all of the MFA students on the University of South Carolina listserv. More than one of them forwarded it to us. "We're all enraged," one MFA grad from USC tells us. "She is nuts!" says another. Indeed. What's your favorite part? The personal revelations? The breathtaking undertone of insult towards those in South Carolina? Her special...

To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss. To love is to risk not being loved in return, To live is to risk dying, To hope is to risk despair, To try is to risk failure.

    Cultural history is never fair. Alan Sillitoe, the novelist who died yesterday, will best be remembered not just for his books, but for being one of the original Angry Young Men of the late 1950s. Ironically enough, this was a role that he never auditioned for, a label that he never wore, and a movement that he didn't sign up to. Yet the appellation stuck and Sillitoe was remembered for being an Angry Young Man for the rest of his life. So who were these youthful angries, and what did they achieve? The Angry Young Men were defined by their...
