Do you like good writing? Haven't you found that good thinking always precedes good writing?

I want to take a moment to crow about one of the best prose writers on the American scene today. That is historian, Victor Davis Hanson, who ordinarily works out of the Hoover Institute at Stanford University. What the man has to say and how he says it just captivate my attention.

Two new articles by Victor Davis Hanson have been published very recently. Both are lyrical in presentation and profound in their ability to capture in words a snapshot of some aspect of the culture and the irrational world we live in. These articles are much too good to try to sample in this blog. Read them for yourself.

THE U.N.? WHO CARES...Victor Davis Hanson, Wall Street Journal, September 23, 2004

Keep in mind when you read these that Victor Davis Hanson is a Democrat. Like Zell Miller, Joe Lieberman, and Evan Bayh, he is a rational Democrat. These Democrats proudly and properly hold the title of the "loyal opposition." That meant that both Democrats and Republicans united on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the Unites States, but differed in their protection and implementation. The term "loyal opposition" does not exist any longer, other than with these men.

If you want to read what and how a Democrat Party member should think, read Victor Davis Hanson, and never miss another one of his articles.
