Have You been Hit by the “iron fist inside the velvet cliché”?

By Nicholas Stix

The phrase is from my VDARE colleague, John Derbyshire.

It’s a wonder WFB’s Rich Lowry hadn’t cut him out of photographs much sooner than he did.

I really must stop reading John. Otherwise, I’ll turn into his Boswell, and I’m already someone’s else Boswell.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Every time I read him, his turns of phrase make me feel like a small creature in his shadow.

I know what you mean. He is depressingly good. I try not to read him just before I write something.
