Andrew Yarrow’s piece in the Washington Post about which I wrote last time has much to recommend it.  As I said last time, Yarrow grasps not only many of men’s problems, but excoriates as “morally wrong” the Left’s refusal to acknowledge, much less address, those problems.  His is a powerful article that all people who believe themselves to be liberal should take to heart.
