Commentary | Eeyore’s Cabinet: The Obscene Word “Merit”

COLUMN By Victor Davis Hanson  Just appearing this week in the news are stories that our elite colleges have sent out letters of admissions.

Laudator Temporis Acti

COLUMN By Victor Davis Hanson History is not the melodrama of faceless collectives, but a tragedy of complexities.  We should not go quietly into the night and allow a current affluent, leisured and pampered generation to hijack the past, and damn it to perdition.
