Because I speak extemporaneously i.e. can never get my act together in time, we can`t post my address to the H.L. Mencken Club
until it`s been transcribed. (Thanks to the Southern Poverty Law Center`s spy for this
horrified book report). The amazing John Derbyshire
doesn`t have my problem. His elegant and erudite dinner address on how the emergence of "biohistory"
will overthrow what he calls "culturalism"
- the dogma that human beings are identical blank slates, differing only because of cultural influences - is posted on Takimag here
. Question: why not on National Review
, where Derbyshire is (at least as of now) an editor?
