If you have a little extra time this weekend, spend a bit of it with David Warren, columnist for The Ottawa Citizen. A rare voice of sanity in the world of modern media.  I like his mind.  Always rewarding.

“No One Home” takes up the problem of Islamism, spurred by the arrest of semi-home-grown bomb plotters in Ottawa.  Warren always has deeper questions on his mind than the obvious ones.

Goodbye Iraq” begins with the end of American combat operations and the troops leaving for home.   But it only begins there, and as a cautionary tale, it covers a lot of territory before ending  up with the rule of law.

Work is not Rabbit” begins with a quote from Czechoslovakia, and winds up with a philosophical discussion of work.

If you enjoy his work as much as I do, subscribe to his mailing list, or add him to your bookmarks.  You’ll be glad you did!
