I'm sure there's love and gratitude involved on their side.

What they need in southern France is a fresh air raid to cleanse the masses.

Average British citizen uses 3 pounds of soap annually. The German uses 2.9 pounds, and the average Frenchman uses 1.3 pounds. This means the average Frenchman uses four or five bars of soap a year. Since this is an average, that means some French use more soap than that, but some use a lot less.

Le Figaro cited experts who concluded that “more than one French person in two does not respect elementary rules of body hygiene.”

Sounds like a violation of human rights!

Agreed completely. He's the only decent writer left at NRO.

Many do not get his sarcastic/sardonic wit, but it is a pleasure to read. While I disagree with him on some fundamentals, I find myself agreeing with him more often than not.


(side bar) NRO has been usurped by the Catholics. I used to read them weekly, but now I find myself only reading JG.

Slow down there cowboy. He is entertaining, not right.

I haven't read him in years. I stopped reading when he got serious. It felt like he started to believe his own bullshit.

As I said, and you quoted "While I disagree with him on some fundamentals, I find myself agreeing with him more often than not." To agree with someone more than 50% of the time makes that statement true. If you disagree with Goldberg more than 50% of the time I'd have to question your ability to think.

Some of it he does, but he's still funny. And Liberal Fascism is a must read, especially for those on the left.

Actually, Liberal Fascism is exactly when I stopped being interested in him. Compared to his web writing, particularly the early stuff, the book was shockingly Coulterish. When I got to the chapter claiming that Bill Clinton was a fascist, I realized that I wasn't reading the book I was expecting. It was just a long political attack, not a serious intellectual work. I should have realized it earlier, since the forward basically says outright that the book is a big hissy-fit, not a rational appraisal of the facts.
