Harry V. Jaffa at 93
Harry V. Jaffa will be 93 years old on October 7th. We should celebrate his long and good life--he still talks and listens, reads and writes, and goes to the gym three times a week--by noting something interesting he has said or written, or maybe something especially good that has been written about him. I am grateful that his fine mind has made his body so rich and I'll post something every week until the week of Oct 7th, and will start with this interview
(about an hour long) conducted by Edward J. Erler about ten years ago. It is under the Liberty Fund's "Intellectual Portrait Series: Conversations with Leading Classical Liberal Figures of Our Time." This is a fine interview. The questions are clean and trim, and he is clear and terse, with a fine peroration on something timeless. Happy birthday to the Old Man, and I thank him.
