Bill Whittle Looks Like He's Becoming a Regular at NRO

Here's his latest column, "The Undefended City" . If you've never read Bill Whittle, you're really missing some incredibly inspireing , and very clear-headed writing. You can find all of his essays at his website, linked over at the right in my sidebar. He has also published them all in a book titled Silent America: Essays from a Democracy at War. From the article:

"It is the small-town virtues of self-reliance, hard work, personal responsibility, and common-sense ingenuity — and not those of the preening cosmopolitans that gape at them in mixed contempt and bafflement — that have made us the inheritors of the most magnificent, noble, decent and free society ever to appear on this earth. This Western Civilization… this American City… has earned the right to greet each sunrise with a blast of silver trumpets that can bring down mountains.

And what, really, is a Legion of Narcissists and a Confederacy of Despair against that?"

Read the whole thing.
