I recall a conversation quite a few years ago with my older brother, who lives in South Dakota, our family's ancestral home. This was when wild turkeys were first making a comeback, and the state had

U.K. Labour Party Commits Suicide

(Steven Hayward) Three weeks ago we took note of the extraordinary candidacy of the far-left Jeremy Corbyn to be the next leader of the Labour Party, how it would represent the suicide of the Labour Party. Put it this way: Corbyn makes Bernie Sanders look like one of those dreaded "neo-liberals" of Naomi Klein's self-induced nightmares. (At least Sanders is pro-Israel, unlike Corbyn, who could be a stenographer for Hamas.) Well, today

U2, For the Next Generation

Thumbing through U2 Experience, a booklet featuring a brief history of the band, discography notes, and, most important, 20 items of band memorabilia, I couldn't help but think of the scene from Spaceballs in which Mel Brooks's character Yogurt explains his primary occupation—selling souvenirs from the very movie in which he stars:

"Merchandising! Merchandising! Where the real money from the movie is made. Spaceballs the t-shirt! Spaceballs the coloring book! Spaceballs the lunchbox! Spaceballs the breakfast cereal! Spaceballs the flamethrower—the kids love this one."
