The Good Journalist.

Claudia Rossett has a blog. Which is something you will welcome after reading this post from Richard North. Honestly, I have been impressed not to say amazed by the amount of detail and interest emanating from his and Helen Szamuely's EU Referendum blog ever since it started. Well, I was brought up on the MSM y'know.

Anyway, back to the good journalist. The good journalist has a sense of history. Claudia Rossett devotes her second post to covering events of sixty-sixty years ago, and to a speech from an Anglo-American of note.

I would quote some of this with reference to today, as the conflict deepens between Islam and the West seemingly more rapidly with every western denial of the fundaments of it. However we need something less hopeful, more cynical, more biting for the current age. I prefer this (all your fakes are belong to us)- a modern response to twistedness, as a stopgap while we get some bearings.

Yet More Mark Steyn:

"in today's mosques and madrassahs there is almost as little contemplation of the divine as there is in the typical Anglican sermon"

That's the good news, I guess.

Oh, and btw, you might notice I put a link to photos in the sidebar- me in Kenya back from summer 98 to 99. Undying feelings though.

To Watch This Video you will need...

1)A certain tolerance of bad language.

2)A bit of patience.

But you will laugh. Some of the best TV I've ever seen- and it's a home video, of sorts.

Btw, I think it's relevant to mention that I was absolutely smitten with the old Dukes of Hazard as a wee one.
