An Assortment: From Art and Language to Constitutional Law and Foreign Policy

Here's a selection of good articles from today's and yesterday's editions of the Jewish World Review. No doubt, they are published elsewhere, too.

  • Do you ever wonder why sometimes even our friends and allies on the international stage don't like us much? Maybe it's partly because we treat them the way we're treating Poland, according to Jeff Jacoby.
  • Max Boot describes how China is taking on the United States in their patient game, rather than opposing our strengths.
  • Wesley Pruden analyzes the challenges John Roberts' nomination poses for the folks who were sharpening their spears and fairly drooling at the prospect of attacking the President's nominee. One of those is Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY), who doesn't know what "fulsome" means, and thus ended up accidentally telling the truth.
  • Larry Elder is very critical of the US Supreme Court's recent Kelo v. City of New London decision, which diminishes private property rights.
  • Gene Weingarten's experience at a great art gallery and his views of art differ from my own, but this piece makes for amusing reading.
