I recommend this piece by Mark Steyn from a couple of days ago, firstly, because he manages to agree with both a recent poster to PooterGeek and with me [see this post and this comment box], and, secondly, because it’s an example of how astonishingly good an opinion piece can be when composed by a master. Mark Steyn writes newspaper columns like Cole Porter wrote popular songs, only he writes a lot more of them. I know Steyn of all people would know what a compliment that is.
