Happy Blogiversary to Me!– It

Happy Blogiversary to Me!— It doesn't seem that long ago, but The Fly Bottle is now over a year old. (It was November 23, to be exact). This is a pretty low-volume, low-traffic site, and Instapundit and others get more hits in a day or so than I've seen in a year…. nonetheless, I think it's nice that I've had 40,000 hits since I've started.

  • As I mentioned over at DeLong’s blog, I’m pretty sure Brooks’ very existence is proof of nihilism.

    Love the new look. Much improved. Actually readable type now. A little NY Times-y tho’.

    There’s a trick to deciphering this Brooks column.

    Step 1. Go to your bookshelf and get out your copy of Irving Kristol’s Neoconservatism: The Autobiography of an idea.

    Step 2. Turn to page 92.

    Step 3. Holding the open book in your hands, gently lick the pages while re-reading Brooks’ column.

    If that doesn’t work, try sitting on a copy of Leo Strauss’ An Introduction to Political Philosophy and return to Step 1.

  • Don Arthur’s right. I get it now!

    FYI, the Strauss method seemed to work better, but that might be due to recency effects.
