WHAT DO YOU MEAN, "HIS" GENERATION?
Praising Jonathan Rauch's latest column, Andrew Sullivan writes, "Jon Rauch is, in my view, the most honest thinker of his generation." I support any and all praise for Jonathan, who's a great writer and a wonderful person. But, let's be honest here: He's only four years older than Andrew. That makes it our generation. Welcome to your forties, Mr. Sullivan. (Pre-order Jonathan's excellent book, Gay Marriage: Why It's Good for Gays, Good for Straights, and Good for America, forthcoming in April, here or his classic defense of freedom of thought, Kindly Inquisitors here.)
