Monday Roundup

Paul Johnson writes about "What Europe Really Needs."

Virginia Postrel on "Consumer Vertigo." She claims, "A new wave of social critics claim that freedom’s just another word for way too much to choose. Here’s why they’re wrong."

Robin Melville writes about the historian Eric Hobsbawm's "Hidden Self" and finds his autobiography (Interesting Times: A Twentieth-Century Life) lacking in self-examination.

William Junker reviews Jeffery Stout's "Democracy and Tradition."

Former Soviet prisoner (in a real Gulag) Pavel Litvinov writes there is "No American 'Gulag'".

An interview with the author of The Truth About Hillary in which he attempts to clear up the bit about the supposed rape.

Journalist gadfly Bernard Goldberg has a new book: 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America: (and Al Franken Is #37).

Seems as if the Boston Globe has discovered "The Other Stem Cells."

Finally, the ProJo has a
story on the travails of a local Army recruiter. Some of the invective hurled at him is simply disgraceful.
