Afflicted By Comfort (

George Will just wrotea book report. The only original thought on Easterbrook's new book (which I am reading and pondering too much, it would seem):

"His book arrives as the nation enters an election year, when the opposition, like all parties out of power, will try to sow despondency by pointing to lead linings on all silver clouds. His timely warning is that Americans are becoming colorblind, if only to the color silver. "

The truth is, Will is a skillful paraphraser. Maybe he's got me there. But it's comforting to know that someday, I'll be able to coast with the best of them.
