Hendrik Hertzberg... blogging. He chose the yearly convention of liberal bloggers to jump on the bandwagon.

I like his writing. His columns on New Yorker seldom fail to please. 40 years worth of these illuminating articles, The Politics, is a gripping read. Anyone who can write like this must be something.

If it is American to believe that God ordered Tribe X to abjure pork, or that he caused Leader Y to be born to a virgin, why is it suddenly un-American to doubt that the prime mover of this unimaginably vast universe of quintillions of solar systems would be likely to be obsessed with questions involving the dietary and biosexual behavior of a few thousand bipeds inhabiting a small part of a speck of dust orbiting a third-rate star in an obscure spiral arm of one of millions of more or less identical galaxies?
