Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

The thin veneer of civilization

Patrick J. Garrity inaugurates his column "Statecraft and Ballcraft" with an article entitled "Golf and the Thin Veneer of Civilization." Now let me just tell you that the article is about sports, winning, civility and honor. It is about the Guardians of the Game. No, actually, it is about an aristocratic game in democratic times. No, it is about politics. No, it is about statesmanship. No, it is about gentlemen and ladies. No, it is about the difference bewteeen barbarism and civilization. No, it is about golf. It doesn’t matter, you read it and don’t you dare tell me you don’t like it. Expect more from Garrity. Five cups of your best.
