Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

December 7th

I’m in Washington and it’s cold and clear. I have been reading Robert J. Norrell’s Up From History: A Life of Booker T. Washington (which is to be published in January) with a review in mind, then stepped out for a coffee and a Jose Marti Dominican. The half-dozen huddled in the cold were talking about Pearl and the Day of Infamy. Here is FDR’s speech to Congress on the 8th.

I somehow very appropriately managed to finish Jim Sheeler's Final Salute this morning. It should be required reading for everyone (especially on this day).
