    Commentary magazine is celebrating their 60 anniversary. They decided to hold a symposium, asking regular contributors to respond to some questions:

    They have 36 responses, which are fascinating, but obviously long. I'm ploughing through them...

    Commentary is one of the magazines I subscribe to;
    the others are the Economist, and the National Review.

    I have perused the essays in the last Commentary,
    and none convinced me, not that I have convinced myself.

    Paul Johnson is the one I most believe, with his emphasis
    on a Nietscheian Will To Power. I was convinced to begin with
    that Iraq was the right place to exercise power. Now I am
    less certain, although embarked as we are, it must be made right.

    Thanks for bringing this to the board, Kathianne. Looks like something I will tackle--all 77 pages of it! Hope I have enough ink left in my printer to make a copy. I have to order my ink from Dell, so I can't just go to Staples and pick up a cartridge.
