One of the Best Interviews I've Read

It's an intervew of Mark Steyn. Nice work John. I am impressed. A taste:
"...Europe does have a religion: radical secularism. The era of the state church has been replaced by an age in which the state itself is the church. European progressives still don't get this: they think the idea of a religion telling you how to live your life is primitive, but the government regulating every aspect of it is somehow advanced and enlightened."
Oh Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy...

Here's some more:
"...journalism schools build their guild mentality at the expense of everything else - the ability to write, the ability to make an argument, an eye for a story, or even basic curiosity about the world we live in. It’s the pomposity of the mainstream press that will do for them..."
I do currently have a subscription to the Wall Street Journal, but I browse a dozen or so other papers online (this site comes in handy when registration is required). TV news outlets always seem to be at least one day behind in their news reporting, sometimes weeks behind, and they typically regurgitate whatever the NY Times says. I also browse a lot of blogs, and have often found them to be more informative than the more established news outlets, not to mention: entertaining.
