Please God, Mr. Doherty, may I offer a bit of friendly counsel:
Come on! You are one among TH’s 20-somethings who have little political acumen other than their ability to cut-and-paste someone else's musings. Step up, there is a vacant position for an intellectual leader among the youths at TH. Judging by the last six months of postings, you seem to be the only one with potential to fill it. So the position is sitting there, laughing at you.
Won’t you step it up? The time scale should be, pronto!
The TH columnists are mostly good, but the youths are cut-and-paste all the way, with minimal commentary.
